It is to be mentioned here that post-Russia-Ukraine war, the whole world is facing a shortage of grain and the effects of this shortage is more problematic for the countries that are already debt-trapped.
On the other hand, western countries are directly blaming the Russian government for creating the food crisis in the entire world and specifically in the African countries.
As per the details, the government of Russia has announced to suspend its participation in the Black Sea grain deal brokered by the United Nations. After what it said was a major drone attack by Ukraine on its fleet in Crimea, dealing a blow to attempts to ease the global food crisis.
The President of the United States (POTUS) Joe Biden denounced the move by the Russian authorities as “purely outrageous”. President Biden also said that this move would increase the starvation globally.
Defence ministry of Putin-led Russian government said Ukraine attacked the Black Sea Fleet near Sevastopol on the annexed Crimean Peninsula with 16 drones early on Saturday. The ministry also said that the British navy “specialists” had helped coordinate the “terrorist” attack.
It is pertinent to mention here that the suspension by Russia will cut the grain exports of the Ukrainian government from its crucial Black Sea ports. This could cause the starvation situation in the country.
