Food security (Debunking Russian disinformation)

23.06.2022

EU SANCTIONS DO NOT RESTRICT EU AND THIRD COUNTRIES’ TRADE IN AGRIFOOD PRODUCTS

Contrary to Russia’s disinformation, the disruption of agricultural production and trade in Ukraine and the spike in global food prices is not caused by EU sanctions - but the very own actions of the Russian Government, such as:

  • the blockage of Ukrainian ports;
  • the deliberate destruction of Ukrainian agricultural facilities; and
  • restrictions imposed on its own export of agricultural products and fertilisers.

Russia should put an end to these actions as this will immediately resolve the looming food crisis.
