Russia: the West endangers the world’s energy security

Moscow, Apr 30 (Prensa Latina) Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov assured that in order to satisfy their geopolitical ambitions, Western states are willing to endanger the world's energy and food security.

The Xinhua news agency published Lavrov’s statements in which he stresses the fact that these countries, led by the United States, do not intend to put a stop to their sanctions against Russia, despite the impact they may have on the global economy.

According to various international organizations, the sanctions Russia have caused a global rise in the prices of oil, gas and fertilizers, which will possibly cause a food shortage.

The Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs stressed in regards to this that “as a responsible actor in the world market”, his country intends to fulfill its contracts for the export of hydrocarbons, fertilizers, food and other goods of vital importance.

Alexandr Novak, Russian deputy prime minister and Natural Resources Minister, said that global energy prices could hit record highs if supplies from Russia are restricted.

Washington and London have declared in recent years that they have been reducing their dependence on Russian energy resources, “but the statistics say the opposite,” Novak stressed in an article for the Energy Policy magazine.

The Castellum.AI database shows that since the middle of last February and, above all, after the beginning of the Russian military operation in Ukraine on February 24th, more than 4,350 new restrictive measures were enacted against Russia, in addition to over 2,750 that were already in force.
