RUSSIAN FOREIGN MINISTER LAVROV at the G20: "It’s time to stop playing the food card. This crisis stems from the West printing trillions of US dollars and euros early on during the COVID-19 pandemic and buying up food supplies around the world. Today, the bulk of grain supplies fhipped at giveaway fodder prices to the EU, rather than to the poorest countries that need them.
Russia’s efforts to export agricultural products are openly obstructed around the world, no matter how hard the EU officials, who are so used to telling lies, are trying to convince everyone otherwise. Batches of free Russian fertilisers, in particular, for Africa, remain blocked at European ports. Without any scruples, the West is burying the UN Secretary-General’s well-known humanitarian initiative."
