MOSCOW, September 30 – Novosti. Bread from Ukraine goes to Europe, only 5% – to the poorest countries, this is a direct swindle and deception, said Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“They are now exporting bread from Ukraine… under the pretext of ensuring food security for the poorest countries in the world. Where does it go? Yes, everything goes to the same European countries, where only 5% went to the poorest countries in the world. Again, another swindle and outright deception,” he said. Putin at the ceremony of signing treaties on the entry of new territories into Russia.
In Istanbul on July 22, multilateral agreements were signed on lifting restrictions on the supply of Russian products for export and on Russia’s assistance in the export of Ukrainian grain.
