(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- On Tuesday, the White House blamed the widespread food shortages in the United States on Russian President Vladimir Putin, accusing him of “weaponizing food.”
John Kirby, the coordinator for strategic communications for the National Security Council at the White House, stated on Tuesday that Russian President Vladimir Putin is “very serious about” weaponizing food. Kirby said let’s just call it what it is; he’s turning food into a weapon.
During his appearance at the White House daily briefing, Kirby discussed the president’s foreign policy plan, including the president’s attempts to get grain out of Ukraine and into global markets.
Because Russia has blocked access to the Black Sea port for Ukrainian producers, thousands of tons of grain are currently sitting in storage in Ukraine.
He added that President Biden would discuss “supply chain challenges” and “food and fuel supply around the world” with the other world leaders who will attend the G-7 summit the following week.
According to Kirby, multilateral leadership counts a lot because this isn’t only affecting the United States. He said that Putin ought to be held accountable for invading Ukraine.
Kirby said that Biden thinks and stands firmly on the concept that Mr. Putin ought to face the consequences of this war of aggression.
The White House and President Joe Biden continue to point the finger at Putin for the high food and gas prices in the United States, referring to this inflation as “Putin’s price increase.”
But according to a recent poll conducted by Rasmussen, only 11 percent of people in the general public believe that Putin is to blame for rising energy costs.
Fifty-two percent of respondents blame Biden’s anti-oil energy ideas for the high prices he espoused when running for president of the United States.
It has been questioned whether Moscow could weaponize the food supply in light of the most recent strikes on a railcar factory, apparently used to transport products like grain.
Some analysts concur with remarks made by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken that Russian President Vladimir Putin was “blackmailing” the world by holding food supplies hostage as part of his war strategy to end sanctions. In contrast, others claim that the West overreached by blaming Putin for everything to hold Putin accountable for the events in Ukraine.
