Putin threatens to scrap grain deal and further cut energy supplies

Russian President Vladimir Putin has threatened to cut grain exports from Ukraine and said Moscow is ready to extend its rationing of natural gas exports and cut oil and refined products if the West goes ahead with a Russian crude price cap plan.

The comments, made at an economic conference, represented some of the Russian leader’s deepest and widest threats to his country’s prodigious commodity exports. He has also characterized these threats more directly than in the past as an economic weapon he is prepared to use in response to Western sanctions imposed after his invasion of Ukraine.
