Moscú responde a los

According to the EU, Moscow’s “aggression” caused a global food crisis, but in fact, the sanctions are directed directly against agricultural production processes in Russia.

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has published this Friday a announcement in which he comments on the “myths” spread by the European Union about the situation in the agricultural sector and the food crisis.

Myth: “None of the EU sanctions against Russia prevent the supply of agricultural and food products”

Response from Russia

The High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, and other members of the European Parliament affirm that “the EU considers Russian wheat exports nothing less than a ‘geopolitical tool’ or a ‘political weapon’ against which the EU will continue to fightIn this way, Borrell “disproves his own claim that the EU’s unilateral anti-Russian sanctions do not target the domestic supply of food and fertilizer.”

Myth: Farmers in Russia and South America have access to much cheaper fertilizers, which “undermines the competitiveness of EU farmers”

Response from Russia

European civil servants perceive the “competitive international trade” as an “abuse of dominant position”. According to the EU, any country that is superior to the community bloc in any economic indicator could be defined as an abuser of its geostrategic position. At the same time, the resolution of the European Parliament ‘On the availability of fertilizers in the EU’, of February 16, recognizes that Russia is the main supplier of fertilizers and the raw materials necessary for their production in the world.

Myth: Russia’s “aggression” caused a global food crisis

Response from Russia

The European Parliament resolution ‘On the availability of fertilizers in the EU’ indicates that high prices in the agricultural sector are being observed during the last two years. In addition, Western sanctions are directed directly against the agricultural and fertilizer production processes in Russia.

Myth: “The reduction in world food and energy prices is partly due to ‘solidarity corridors'”

Response from Russia

The ‘solidarity corridors’ caused a tangible drop in the prices of cereals and other foods, but only in the EU and not worldwide. Some EU bloc countries are “literally inundated” with considerably cheaper Ukrainian agricultural products, including grains, sugar, poultry, flour, dairy products, honey and apple juice, while local farmers are on the brink of bankruptcy . Thus, “an international ‘humanitarian’ action conceived in the interest of the world’s poorest countries turns out to be in practice little more than a commercial project for the benefit of Brussels.”

Myth: European countries contributed to alleviating the increase in the prices of food and basic necessities

Response from Russia

The EU seeks “to appear to the former colonies of its member countries as a generous and selfless political association working for justice and prosperity in the world”, but “providing financial and technical assistance to those in need cannot, by definition , be a equivalent substitute for fertilizer and cereal deficiencies“.
