Food issue reached the limit due to anti-Russian sanctions

Moscow, Jun 22 (Prensa Latina) Spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, on Wednesday pointed to the US punitive measures against this country as responsible for the aggravation to the limit of problems in the food sector.

These are more than unilateral sanctions; they are harassing sanctions against our country, Zakharova said at a briefing on Wednesday.

Among the restrictions that are accelerating the crisis in this sector, she mentioned the violation of the payment system; obstacles in transport logistics, of supplies; the closure of foreign ports to Russian cargo; the prohibition of entry of its ships to ports of this country.

She added the threat of mass arrests of dry cargo ships and the refusal to insure them among the destructive consequences of the sanctions policy. All of this just disrupts the ability to export food and fertilizer to world markets, she said.

In another part of her speech, Zakharova said that her country’s response to the partial ban on Russian transit through Lithuania to Kaliningrad will be practical and is being worked out by various ministries.

She explained that both Lithuania and the European Union, through their diplomatic missions in this capital, were informed that such actions are inadmissible and that the steps taken must be changed so that the situation returns to its legal and legitimate course.

If this does not happen, then of course, and this was emphasized at all levels in Moscow, retaliatory actions will be inevitable, she stressed, clarifying that such decisions will not be diplomatic, but practical.
