Putin to help solve food crisis if sanctions lifted - Kremlin

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday, during a phone call with Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, that Russia is ready to contribute to solving the food crisis, however, only after the politically motivated sanctions against Moscow have been lifted, according to Kremlin.

The head of Russia underscored that the current food security situation has been caused by the United States and the European Union and their anti-Russia bans. He added that the failures in supply chains, as well as the financial policy the West has imposed, have exacerbated the food crisis.

On the topic of energy, Putin told Draghi that gas supplies from Russia to Italy will continue without any interruptions.
