Fourth Wave of Putin’s Blackmail

The head of the Ukrainian president's office took part in the meeting of the FA and defense committee of the parliament of Ireland

On June 1, during a committee meeting at the parliament of Ireland, Andrii Yermak named and characterized Putin's manipulations against the whole world. The first 3 were the oil/gas blackmail of Europe, the threat of a second Chornobyl explosion (now the threat has shifted from Chornobyl to the Zaporizhzhia NPP), and a nuclear strike. The turn of artificial hunger has come.

"The robbery of the occupied territories of Ukraine is large-scale and systematic. And this indicates that looting is the basis of Russian state policy on these lands. Hundreds of thousands of tons of Ukrainian grain have already been exported to the Russian Federation from the southern regions under the control of Russian troops. Russia refuses to provide green corridors for the export of our agricultural products. This is obvious blackmail of the world community with food shortages because before the war, Ukraine acted as a guarantor of food security for 400 million people on the planet," Andrii Yermak.

It is known that the invaders continue to export Ukrainian grain and other food. Part of the food (seasonal vegetables, berries and fruits) is exported to Crimea and Russia, and the grain (at least 500.000 tons of grain) was exported to Russia and they are trying to sell it to Europe. Another 90 million tons of grain are blocked in Ukrainian ports.
