Global food giant Cargill is reducing its business in Russia as a response to the attack on Ukraine.

The Minnesota-based company issued a statement saying that the people of Ukraine are living an unthinkable and horrifying reality since their country was invaded.  Cargill says it has a long history in Russia, but in a time like no other, is scaling back business activities there and has stopped investment.  It will continue to operate essential food and feed facilities in Russia, calling food “a basic human right” that should never be used as a weapon.  Cargill says it is sending profits from its operations to Ukrainian humanitarian efforts and food programs.
