Wheat Exports The United Nations is making constant efforts to ensure the supply of wheat. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has expressed hope that the impasse in food and fertilizer supplies will end soon.
Moscow, Reuters. Tensions continue between Russia and the West over wheat exports. Russian President Vladimir Putin has blamed Western countries for the rising wheat prices in the world. It has been said that due to sanctions from Western countries, Russian cargo ships are unable to supply goods. Western countries are not ready to lift restrictions on food supply despite repeated calls.
Putin has denied allegations of intercepting food-laden ships at Ukrainian ports. Said that if the western countries have problems with Russia, they can start supplying wheat to Ukraine from there by lifting the sanctions on Belarus. While the US and Britain have blamed Russia for the non-supply of wheat from Ukraine. The United Nations is making constant efforts to ensure the supply of wheat. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has expressed hope that the impasse in food and fertilizer supplies will end soon. Christian cleric Pope Francis has also asked Russia and Ukraine to ensure the supply of wheat. He has appeared not to make wheat a weapon. It should be noted that Russia and Ukraine are the major exporters of wheat. Russia is unable to supply wheat due to Western sanctions, and Ukrainian wheat is also being exported due to the occupation of Ukrainian ports and the blockade of Russian forces in the Black Sea.
