With the outbreak of war in Ukraine, the Lebanese feared losing goods that Lebanon had imported from Ukraine, especially wheat. In a review of the movement of trade exchange between Lebanon and Ukraine, we find that there is a major imbalance in the trade balance in favor of Ukraine, as Lebanon hardly exports anything, while imports from Ukraine amount to about $354 million as an annual average during the years 2012-2020. In 2020, the volume of imports from Ukraine amounted to 272 One million dollars at a time when the volume of exports from Lebanon to Ukraine reached 950 thousand dollars. As for the most prominent commodities that Lebanon imported from Ukraine in the year 2020, wheat came in the first place, with a volume of 511 thousand tons and a value of 119 million dollars, which constitutes 44% of the value of imports. In addition to wheat, Lebanon imported from Ukraine in 2020: crude oils, iron, cows, corn, stamps, barley, sugar, soybeans, sheep and peeled nuts.
