The actions could undermine fundamental economic agreements, França noted at a Senate Foreign Affairs Committee hearing.

“(These measures) can aggravate the economic effects of the conflict and affect the chain of essential inputs,” he said.

He insisted that “the sanctions tend to comprise the interests of a small group of countries, harming the vast majority, which depend on basic inputs.”

One of Brazil’s concerns is the continued import of Russian fertilizers that, according to the foreign minister, are “indispensable for agriculture and the world’s food security.”

Russia launched a military operation against the autonomous region of Donbass on February 24, after authorities from the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republic requested help to repel the military aggression from Kiev.
