UKRAINE Ukraine will not be allowed to go without food, agriculture minister Igor Shvaika has declared on live television.

Regardless of fighting in the East and the Crimean occupation, Mr Shvaika pledged food for the nation on ZIK, an independent channel for western Ukraine.

He added that government corruption issues are being addressed across all departments, including agriculture.

Summarising current government ethos, he said: “We must work in conditions of maximum transparency, honesty and openness."
