This is what the President of the United States of America, Joe Biden, said said during the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
Biden said that Russia is to blame for the global food crisis. In addition, the Russian Federation spreads lies about Western sanctions during the war in Ukraine.
“Russia… is pumping out lies trying to blame the crisis – the food crisis – on the sanctions imposed by many in the world for aggression against Ukraine. So let me make something clear: our sanctions are to clearly allow, clearly allow Russia the ability to export food and fertilizer. No restrictions
It is Russia’s war that is worsening food security, and only Russia can put an end to it,” Biden said.
The US president emphasized the help of the UN in concluding an agreement on the export of grain with Ukraine and the Russian Federation. Biden encourages its continuation.
The statement also said that 193 million people worldwide are acutely food insecure: “A jump of 40 million in a year.”
Biden also announced the provision of $2.9 billion in humanitarian and food aid to the United States.
- On September 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a partial mobilization in the country.
