Burbock blamed Russia for the rise in prices

Burbock blamed Russia for the rise in prices

German Foreign Minister Annalena Burbock declared the responsibility of the Russian authorities for the rise in prices for food and energy resources, despite the fact that the Russian leadership has repeatedly said that the sanctions imposed against the Russian Federation have hit the entire world economy.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has previously stated that the policy of containment and weakening of Russia is a long-term strategy of the West, and sanctions have dealt a serious blow to the entire global economy. According to him, the main goal of the West is to make the lives of millions of people worse. He added that current events draw a line under the global dominance of the West in both politics and economics.

“Negative consequences – rising food prices or energy prices – only the Russian president is responsible for this,” Burbock argues.

As the minister stated, Russia is allegedly “waging a grain war,” blocking ports from where grain could be exported.


Earlier, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov, commenting on the statements about the export of grain by Russia from Ukraine, said that they look like a fake, those who say this did not bother to check the information. And according to the ex-deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Ilya Kiva, according to his source, Volodymyr Zelensky ordered to take the state grain reserve of Ukraine to Poland. State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said that Washington does not believe in Kyiv’s victory, but is thinking about how to quickly take grain out of there, “arranging a famine in Ukraine.”


According to Burbock, within the framework of the G7, work is underway to create alternative routes for the delivery of grain from Ukraine. Similar issues will be discussed at a ministerial meeting on food security in New York on Wednesday. Burbock said she would attend the meeting.
