WASHINGTON, May. 29 (Saba) -The Russian ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov said on Friday that difficulties in the global food market have been building up for a long time, but “the crisis was further exacerbated due to the introduction by Washington and its satellites of illegitimate sanctions against Russia."
Russia has come under a new raft of sanctions from the US and its Western allies after President Vladimir Putin launched an offensive against Ukraine on February 24.
"In addition, the US continues to increase import taxes on our fertilizers,” Antonov said.
