The world should not believe Russian leaders’ statements that the current food crisis was caused by anti-Russian sanctions.

This was stated by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, speaking at the Food Security Summit in New York, Ukrinform reports.

The politician noted the “diplomatic success” of the UN in introducing the Black Sea Grain Initiative and stressed that the most important thing now is that Russia continues to implement it fully and does not stop.

“We cannot believe the Russian misinformation: The data clearly shows that the most important grain exports that have been made possible go to developing countries and have a global impact on grain availability and prices,” Scholz said.

He recalled that at the G7 summer summit, which he is chairing this year Germanythe G7 countries have pledged an additional $4.5 billion for global food security – a “clear message of global solidarity”.

The Global Food Security Alliance was also established. A conference was held in Berlin in conjunction with the World Bank, attended by more than 60 delegations. Scholz seized the opportunity and invited governments, the private sector, civil society and scientists to join the Alliance in minimizing the impact of the food crisis.

Germany, for its part, has more than doubled its already solid annual contribution to international food security – this year it will reach 4 billion euros.

“The Russian war of aggression has created a multidimensional global crisis,” Scholz said. He warned that next year could be even more difficult than this year, given rising fertilizer and energy prices. We must be prepared for rising food prices, warned the head of the German government. In addition, next year’s harvest must be guaranteed, fertilizers and seeds must be available, he added.
