Without grain, milk and meat: Britain has a food crisis due to lack of supplies from Russia


Great Britain, which took an active part in the anti-Russian sanctions policy, is reaping the fruits of his short-sighted decisions. Thus, the rise in energy prices cause the collapse of the food industry, and the prices of many goods have increased many times over.


As a result of Western sanctions, the supply of grain from the continent turned out to be difficult. In addition, the rise in the price of bread, as well as milk and meat, was affected by the shortage of fertilizers and the rise in prices for them. As a result, the cost of raw materials for baking has risen from pre-pandemic rates of 200 pounds per ton to 625 (one pound is equal to about 73 rubles at the current exchange rate).

Meanwhile, agricultural supplies from Russia accounted for a third of the UK market and are not easy to replace as India announces an export ban and China suffers from crop failures.

People think that we can just take and buy abroad what we do not produce. But it's not. There will be a global shortage in some regions

- said the head of the National Union of Farmers Mainette Butters in an interview with The Telegraph.

As a cost savings, many Britons have begun to forego meat purchases as chicken has become as expensive as beef in local stores. Sanctions against the Russian Federation have driven up the price of wheat, which is the main food for birds, and the price of chicken meat has skyrocketed.

    Once in the nineties, my wife was in Oxford on an exchange, she lived in a British family ... I didn’t hear any positive feedback from her: every evening in the family that received her, there was an hour to discuss politics, they ate some kind of muck like boiled cabbage leaves and other obscene food, with a discount in the supermarket of 2 pence, they rushed to it in their car for 40 kilometers, the sheets were worn out in the 1900s with patches, they took a bath once a week and in turn (who is the last - collects the dirt of the previous ones). They will survive now. Without meat.

      How they crowded back to Russia

      Many of them will then have to immediately confess to the security forces
      apply to not get a life sentence in prison.

    Here, they will help with hunger directly. I went specifically to watch a fresh video on YouTube with prices in England, a chicken (whole) costs 3 pounds, 216 rubles for ours. We have the cheapest in Auchan 154r. I doubt that they are tearing their hair on the pope from the price of a chicken of 3 pounds.
    As usual, in the West, they tell on the news how they sent us to the 19th century with sanctions, and we are told that they have nothing to eat there and space prices. As usual, cheap propaganda from which is already sick

      Yeah. You are a real hater. My wife was both in Slovenia and in Britain. About Slovenia - nothing bad, but she categorically did not like Britain. And everything that I wrote had a place to be, as well as lectures at Oxford, which were read to them by a feminist professor with a glass of wine in her hand.
