According to the U.S. president, “the price of sanctions falls not only on Russia, but also on many other countries, including European ones.”
The events around Ukraine will lead to problems with food; these issues were discussed by the leaders of the G7 and NATO. This was stated on Thursday at a press conference by U.S. President Joe Biden.
“As for the shortage of food, we talked about it. It’s real. The price of sanctions falls not only on Russia, but also on many other countries, including European and our country,” he said.
“Russia and Ukraine were the breadbaskets of Europe, if we talk, for example, about wheat,” he continued. – We discussed this issue for a long time in the G7 format. The USA is the third country in terms of wheat production; Canada is also a major producer of wheat. We talked about how to increase and distribute food faster in order to prevent its shortage. We also talked about calling on European and all other countries to lift restrictions on food exports.”
