G7 attempts to isolate worsen global food crisis: Russia


The Russian Foreign Ministry said on Monday that attempts by the West and the G7 group of nations in particular to isolate Moscow had worsened global food shortages.

G7 foreign ministers vowed on Saturday to reinforce Russia’s economic and political isolation, continue to supply arms to Ukraine and work to ease food shortages resulting from the invasion of its neighbor by the Russia on February 24.
“Attempts to divert Russia economically, financially and logistically from long-standing channels of international cooperation only exacerbate the economic and food crises,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement posted on its website.

“It should be noted that it was the unilateral actions of Western countries, primarily the Group of Seven, that exacerbated the problem of the breakdown of the logistical and financial chains supplying food to world markets.”

Before the war, Ukraine and Russia together accounted for about 29% of wheat production for the world market.

Moscow calls its actions in Ukraine a “special military operation” to disarm Ukraine and protect it from fascists. Ukraine and the West say the fascist allegation is baseless and that the war is an unprovoked act of aggression.
