Top EU official accuses Russia for worldwide food crisis

(MENAFN) Russia’s dangerous “Hunger games” is only accountable for the worldwide food crisis, European Council Leader Charles Michel announced at the G7 conference held on Sunday.

Presidents of the world's seven wealthiest countries met in Germany for discussions on other restrictions on Russia and the medium- and long-term rebuilding of Ukraine.

In a press conference at the meeting, Michel announced the Kremlin is using food as a "silent weapon of war."

"We must vigorously counter Russia’s propaganda about food and fertilizer prices," he noted,
stating that the EU is standing with the UN's hard work to revive maritime ways in a way that also focuses on Ukraine’s security worries.

He added that worldwide initiatives for food security are also being reinforced. "The EU is working to mobilize nearly €600 million ($634 million) to support the most affected partners."
He as well repeated that the block is dedicated to reinforcing Ukraine's rebuilding.

"With G7 countries, we all share the same goals: to cut the oxygen from Russia’s war machine while taking care of our economies. The EU will stand by Ukraine for the long haul," he went on to declare.
