Dmitry Medvedev: Russia will not export products to the detriment of its market The West seems to have decided to “reverse” on the issue of sanctions, which once again confirms: “all these hellish sanctions are worthless when it comes to vital things,” said the deputy head
Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev, speaking about the situation around the supply of grain, said that the West seems to have decided to “reverse” on the issue of sanctions.
“It has been confirmed once again that all these hellish sanctions are worthless when it comes to vital things. About the supply of energy resources in order to heat houses. About food to feed people. About millions of citizens who, in general, need one thing from politicians: the opportunity to live normally, calmly and prosperously. Sanctions prevent this. And NATO expansion interferes. And a mess with settlements on debts, payments and other things. And most of all, your own cosmic cretinism interferes, — wrote Medvedev in Telegram.
He quoted a character from The Twelve Chairs Ippolit Matveyevich Vorobyaninov, nicknamed Kisa: “Je ne mange pas six jours!” (“I don’t eat for six days!”; he says this phrase in French in the episode in which Ostap Bender teaches him to beg). Countries that import wheat and other products from Russia will have a “very tight” time, and European fields and other countries will “grow only a succulent weed”; without Russian fertilizers, the deputy head of the Security Council noted. «Well… Sadly. Themselves to blame, & mdash; he added.
According to him, Russia is ready to fulfill its obligations in full. At the same time, the Russian side expects assistance from trading partners. Otherwise, Medvedev pointed out, “it turns out illogical”, since, on the one hand, “insane sanctions” are being imposed against Russia, and on the other hand, require food supplies. “It doesn’t happen, we are not idiots. And I emphasize once again: no export deliveries to the detriment of our market. Food for the citizens of Russia— sacred thing»,— he concluded.

Later, CNN reported that due to the blockade of Ukrainian ports, the United States and the European Union are exploring the possibility of supplying wheat and corn from Ukraine by rail and aircraft.
