CNN: Putin threatens to restrict Ukrainian grain exports for European countries

According to a story in CNN, “Russian President Vladimir Putin Putin threatened Wednesday to restrict Ukrainian grain exports to European countries and accused them of acting “like colonial powers,” as he used misleading figures to claim that developing countries are receiving a fraction of the exports they were expecting under the UN-brokered Black Sea Grain Initiative.” Putin plans to consult on this subject with the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

“In a statement to CNN, the United Nations said that under the Black Sea Grain Initiative, roughly 30% of ‘grains and other foodstuffs’ have made it to low- and lower-middle-income countries, or approximately 700,000 metric tons.”
