European politicians believe that Russia is deliberately blocking ports in the Black Sea
The head of the German Foreign Ministry Annalena Berbock reproached the Kremlin for Russia deliberately using hunger as a weapon and trying to shift responsibility for the sharp rise in prices for products on others. Of course, the Russian authorities could not remain silent and once again “distinguished” Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev.
Thus, Burbock walked around the Russian authorities during an international conference on global food security on Friday, June 24, in Berlin. She stated: “Russia is trying to shift the blame for the sharp rise in food prices to others, and is also blockading ports in the Black Sea”. At the same time, the German Foreign Minister added that she was in solidarity with Ukraine and the inhabitants of the “global South”, suffering from a shortage of grain.
Negotiations may take place in the near future, but will they help Ukraine with exports grain by sea.
At least two bulk carriers loaded with wheat headed to the Middle East
Reply Medvedev decided for her. In his own Telegram channel, he wrote: “It is surprising to hear this from officials whose country kept Leningrad in blockade for 900 days, where almost 700 thousand people died of starvation”.
On the Internet, the words of the Russian politician were criticized and ridiculed, emphasizing the absurdity of his attack. First of all, because today's Germany has nothing to do with the “siege of Leningrad”, and secondly, the authorities of the then USSR, headed by Stalin, deliberately removed grain from Leningrad so that the Germans would not get it, and this is largely influenced the fact that the population was starving and dying of hunger.
