Steinmeier emphasized that Putin’s war of aggression does not only affect the people in Ukraine.
Due to the fact that Russia is blocking the export of millions of tons of grain in Ukrainian ports, world prices for it have risen sharply.
“Many regions of the world are facing starvation and death in the coming months, especially in East and South Africa,” Steinmeier said.
The German President also stressed that “the consequences of Putin’s war will hit the states that have not yet recovered from the coronavirus pandemic, and the regions where the soil is drying up and becoming barren due to the climate crisis.”
