On Wednesday, the Kremlin stated that the world may be facing a major food shortage. It blamed “illegal restrictions” placed on Russia by Western countries as well as decisions made by Ukrainian authorities.

Three months after invading Ukraine’s shores, Russia has taken large swathes of its neighbor’s coast and is blocking its ports. However, Russia is trying to blame Western sanctions and Kyiv for the shortage of grain shipments.

Dmitry Peskov, a Kremlin spokesperson, said that the country is at the brink of a food crisis due to illegal restrictions and Ukrainian authorities’ actions.
