Russia Stipulates Lifting Sanctions in Exchange for Avoiding Global Food Crisis

 Moscow stipulated that Western countries lift sanctions imposed on it to avoid a global food crisis due to the suspension of Ukrainian grain exports.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Rudenko said, as quoted by Russian news agencies, that his country is ready to provide a humanitarian sea corridor for ships carrying food to leave Ukraine.

Ukraine is known for its very fertile black soil. Before the Russian invasion of its lands, Ukraine was the fourth global exporter of corn, and it is about to become the third source of wheat globally.

However, the conflict has greatly affected Ukrainian production, while Kyiv and Western countries accuse Moscow of preventing grain exports through the Black Sea, which raises the possibility of a major global food crisis.
