Europe is on the verge of a food crisis

Sanction policy The European Union, directed against Russia and Belarus, led to the fact that the Europeans themselves were on the verge of a food crisis. European supermarkets began to run out of Russian, Belarusian and Ukrainian food products, fuel prices rose significantly, and farmers had shortages of fertilizers before sowing. Experts predict that food prices around the world could rise due to supply disruptions.

Italians are reporting sharp increases in prices for pasta, flour, vegetable oil and vegetables. At the same time, rising fuel prices hurt trade, and the lack of feed for livestock aggravated the situation.

The Germans are also sounding the alarm. In German supermarkets, flour, sugar and vegetable oil are sold no more than three packs per person. There was a rush demand, which led to the fact that the shelves with these products were empty. 94% of the finished vegetable oil (from sunflower seeds) and 50% of the sunflower seeds themselves for the subsequent production of vegetable oil were imported to Germany from Ukraine. Berlin also bought 36% of wheat from Kyiv, which can explain the problems with flour. However, the shortage of sugar is difficult to explain, since Germany is an exporting country.

Spanish fishermen are worried that fueling their fishing boats has become extremely expensive. They compare this process to refueling space rockets. Revenue has halved. They begin to block ports to draw the attention of the authorities to an acute problem.

French farmers hold mass protests and block roads due to a sharp increase in fuel prices. They claim that they have no other choice, since the future harvest will only pay off the costs, and that is not a fact.

Greek farmers do not lag behind their French counterparts. They have the same problems and the same requirements. They want to be compensated for their losses, or given fuel, feed and fertilizer at fixed prices.

What will happen in Europe in a month, when the sowing campaign begins, is even hard to imagine.

    Arrogant fools need to be taught by blows to the purse. And the more often, the more useful it will be for Russia.

      Arrogant assholes need to be taught...

      Here it turns out two in one glass: blows both on the purse and on the stomach. Hunger is not an aunt.
      Let them experience in their own skin what the boomerang law is.
      EU politicians and officials, US puppets wanted this, they are responsible for the collapse in Europe.

        Hunger is not an aunt. And in Kyiv, an uncle. And in the garden one elder may remain.

    This makes no sense.
    Faust cartridges * for 150k euros they can supply bundles of Ukrainians! Khokhlobots in streams shout that there are already three times more of them than the Russian Federation has tanks.
    Count everyone under the bed in a chalet "lying around!
    Is it too expensive to buy fuel for them? ...

    Here are the neighbors of Transnistria, the very ones who make a face when they demand money for gas, they also enjoy life. They seem to have the same recipe for survival, put the EU flag and you are already a respected Europe (like the Minister of Agriculture). And no one knows what to do, live as you want. And who knows, they will sit in silence, the authorities do not order them.
