Ukraine’s Representative to UN compares Putin to Stalin: He also uses food as a weapon against Ukraine
Russian President Vladimir Putin deliberately uses food as a weapon against the Ukrainian people.
“Putin is not the first dictator to use food as a weapon against the Ukrainian people. The ideological apostle of Moscow, Stalin, killed millions of Ukrainians 90 years ago, during the artificially organized Great Famine. Not surprisingly, Putin, who honors Stalin as his ancestor, pursues the same practice,” Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the UN Sergiy Kyslytsya said at the Security Council meeting, dedicated to the humanitarian situation in Ukraine, an Ukrinform correspondent reports from New York.
The Russian war, the diplomat said, includes shelling of agricultural infrastructure, contamination of Ukrainian soils, attacks on fuel depots, and, consequently, disruption of the sowing campaign.
