Putin is angry that the EU imposes restrictions on the export of Russian fertilizers, even though he himself banned them

Speaking at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Samarkand, Uzbekistan, Putin called on United Nations representatives to put pressure on EUto lift the restrictions it imposed in response to Russia’s war in Ukraine.

Russia is ready to give 300,000 to developing countries “for free”. tons of fertilizer, V. Putin said, adding that this amount accumulated in EU ports.

In an interview with dpa and other European media unrelated to Putin’s latest remarks, European Council President Charles Michel accused the Russian leader of publishing “fake news.”

“Russia itself has decided to ban the export of agricultural products,” he said. V. Putin is trying to shift the blame for food supply problems in African countries to the EU and G7 countries. “This fake news is of course not true,” said Ch. Michel added that he maintains relations with African countries.

At the summit, Putin accused the West of making mistakes and said the world was undergoing an “irreversible” transformation into new power centers, apparently referring to close cooperation between Russia and China.

He noted that the WCO is the world’s largest regional organization and is open to new members. At the summit, steps were initiated regarding the admission of Belarus to this organization.

The CBO consists of China, Russia, India, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
