Ukraine's grain exports will increase to 2 million tonnes in June from 1.7 million tonnes in May and reach the maximum volume that Ukraine can ship by land routes, reported Reuters, citing First Deputy Agriculture Minister Taras Vysotskiy on Monday.

"The dynamics are positive, but 2 million tonnes is the maximum that the existing infrastructure can provide through land routes," Vysotskiy told Ukrainian national television.

He added that Ukrainian seaports, which have been blocked by Russia since it invaded Ukraine, were capable to exports 5 million tonnes a month.
