Russia using famine as a threat – Zelensky


Some more now from the address delivered by the Ukrainian president a few hours ago.
Zelensky referred to the blockade of Ukraine’s Black Sea ports, something experts say could trigger a global food crisis.
That’s because – prior to the invasion – Ukraine exported a large amount of agricultural products around the world.
Zelensky repeated his accusation that the blockade was part of a deliberate strategy by Moscow to cause chaos.
He said Russian officials were “openly threatening the world that there will be famine in dozens of countries”.
Directly addressing Western leaders, he asked: “What political instability and migration flows will this lead to? How much will you have to spend then to overcome the consequences?”
