The head of the Presidential Office emphasizes that Russia needs a new famine in order to blackmail the world, undermine the international coalition around Ukraine and win the war in Europe.

Andriy Yermak , head of the Office of the President of Ukraine , notes that they want to use “world hunger” as a weapon.

He announced this in his Telegram channel .

They want to use “world hunger” as a weapon. I have repeatedly said that Russia is preparing a food crisis that could trigger a chain of other crises in the world. They block Ukrainian ports, destroy crops, occupy large territories in the South and steal our grain,” the head of the President’s Office said.

Yermak added that historian Timothy Snyder confirms a number of the warnings he spoke about earlier.

“Putin’s Hunger Plan” is aimed at launching a wave of refugees from the Middle East and Africa into the EU and hitting the economies of our allies. According to Snyder, against the backdrop of possible food riots, Russia will try to blackmail the world, will blame Ukraine and demand recognition of territorial achievements and lift sanctions,” he said.

Russia, Yermak noted, is trying to destroy Ukraine as an exporter and guarantor of world food security.

“I wrote earlier that Russia needs a new famine to try to blackmail the world, undermine the international coalition around Ukraine and win the war in Europe. Therefore, there can be no simple solutions here,” the head of the Presidential Office emphasized.

The head of the OP announced three steps to solve the problem:

  • green corridors from Ukrainian ports to unblock them and take out grain;
  • military convoys, as well as anti-ship missiles for Ukraine;
  • no sanctions concessions for the Russian Federation.

“We don’t have much time to think. We need decisive action today,” Yermak summed up.

  1. Putler’s plans are easy to see if you want to see. The question is; will the West stand by once again and just watch him committing another crime? So far, this seems to be the case. Hot jets of gasses carrying empty words won’t stop this monster. Only concrete action will.
