GENVE (Reuters) – A World Food Program (WFP) official said Friday that food supply chains in Ukraine are collapsing, with some infrastructure destroyed and many supermarkets and warehouses now empty.

Jakob Kern, WFP emergency coordinator for the crisis in Ukraine, also expressed concern about the situation in “encircled cities” such as Mariupol, saying supplies are running out and his convoys have not yet been able to enter the city.
