“The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that the US is considering ‘military solutions’ to protect shipments of grain leaving Ukraine’s Danube River ports as an alternative to the Black Sea grain deal that Russia recently exited.

The Journal cited an unnamed senior US official based in Washington. The report reads: ‘The US is considering all potential options, including military solutions, to protect ships headed to and from Ukraine’s Danube ports, the Washington official said, but declined to give specifics on those options or say what countries would be involved in them.’”
