The world is facing the biggest banana crisis. Lack of popular fruit may soon be felt by Russian consumers, as well as residents of Europe and the Middle East. It is the countries of these regions that account for the bulk of imports from Ecuador, where farmers now suffer huge losses. More than 30% of the harvest has already been lost. All this is due to the eruption of the Sanagay volcano. Because of the strong emissions at least 83 thousand hectares of land have been affected, houses and crops are now covered with a thick layer of ash. Because of the volcano activity, the international airport is closed.
