About half the world's production of sunflower oil comes from Russia and Ukraine. It's not surprising that the supermarket prices have risen as a consequence of the supply problems.
yep
wheat, barley are another two of Ukraine's major exports.
let's imagine just what staple foodstuff ( let alone alcohol based beverages) are made from wheat and or barley.

The transport problem is being resolved although there's still a long way to go to replace sea routes with land routes. The bigger problem is the declining harvest & reduced planting which is what is really driving the futures prices upwards. The issue for the first world is merely price - for third world countries it's famine.
possibly.
however, if such nations would look to feed their own, as opposed to producing cash crops...then all may be well.

Often the temptation to export at elevated prices becomes too hard to resist especially as the local economy can't afford these prices.
true...but self sustainability must take precedence.

You mean over profits & taxation? That's going to be pretty hard to achieve when corruption is endemic.
that's the flip side...+ all them types fighting each other too.
