LFormer Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Thursday that Osers could not attack Russia with “insane” sanctions, while expecting the country to guarantee food supplies.
On the same day, US Secretary of State Anthony Blingen called on the United States to convene a UN General Assembly. At the Security Council meeting, he accused the government of “seizing the food supply of millions of Ukrainians and millions of people around the world.”
“Our country is ready to accept all its obligations,” he said. Medvedev responded. But he also expects help from his business partners, “said Russia’s current deputy head of the Security Council. “Otherwise it makes no sense: on the one hand they are imposing insane sanctions on us, on the other hand they are demanding that the food supply be ensured. It does not work like that, we are not fools,” the former president (2008-2012) added.
Russia and Ukraine account for 30% of global food supplies.
On Thursday, the United States and Russia called on the UN to address the worst food insecurity in the world. Blamed themselves on, and Washington called on Moscow to allow the export of banned Ukrainian grain into Black Sea ports.
Stop besieging Black Sea ports! Allow free movement of ships, trains and trucks carrying food from Ukraine, “said Anthony Blinken.
Condemning the Western desire to “blame Russia for all the problems in the world,” Russian Ambassador to the UN Vasily Nebenzia categorically rejected Western allegations.
The ambassador to Russia said that the food crisis in the world has been going on for a long time and that its root causes are from the “inflation vortex” triggered by rising insurance costs, difficult logistics flows and speculation in Western markets.
A total of 80 countries were scheduled to speak at a Security Council meeting on Thursday following UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ appeal to Russia to release Ukrainian grain exports.
