This is a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets accusing the West of aggravating the situation in Ukraine. This claim is made in the context of Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine.
Speaking about the international food export, the disinformation tries to deflect attention away from Russia's responsibility for attacks on Ukrainian ports, railroad infrastructure. Russia's blockade of Ukraine's seaports has also contributed to aggravating the overall humanitarian situation in the world. Due to this blockade, Ukraine cannot send its agricultural exports by sea, which is threatening millions of people in the world with famine.
On defense of Ukraine: Western nations are sending weapons to Ukraine with the sole purpose of helping it repel Russia's aggression. Western weapons are intended to assist Ukraine in its fight to liberate its territories and restore its territorial integrity within the internationally recognised borders. Ukraine does not intend to move further into Russia within its internationally recognised borders.
What really destabilises the situation and aggravates the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine is Russia’s targeting of civilian infrastructure and residential areas, which has led to numerous victims among civilians. There is ample evidence of Russian military crimes in Ukraine in the town of Bucha outside Kyiv, Mariupol and other places.
