According to the chairman of the State Duma, Washington is looking for ways to export grain from Ukraine in order to “quickly return” the funds provided to it. Volodin is convinced that the American authorities do not believe in the victory of Kyiv “Volodin announced the “Holodomor” threatening Ukraine due to debts to the United States” />
Washington does not believe in Kyiv's victory and is dragging out military operations in Ukraine, providing it with assistance, State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said in his Telegram channel. At the same time, the United States is looking for ways to export grain from Ukraine, which it needs itself— “Instead of real help, they take away the most necessary things, arranging a surplus appraisal,” the deputy noted.
he wrote. Ukraine is “more and more credited”, and this, according to Volodin, does not improve the well-being of its inhabitants.
Since the beginning of the military operation in Ukraine, the United States has been supplying the country with military, economic and humanitarian aid. On May 9, US President Joe Biden signed a law on lend-lease for Ukraine (during the Second World War, Washington leased or transferred military equipment to the allies on a long-term loan under the lend-lease program). The next day, the House of Representatives approved a $40 billion additional aid bill for Ukraine.
Moscow has repeatedly accused Washington of prolonging the conflict in Ukraine by “pumping” her weapon. After the approval of the multi-billion-dollar support package by the lower house of Congress, Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev said that US assistance is explained not by love for Ukraine and not by the desire to support its own economy, but by the desire to limit Russia's economic development and political influence.
May 10, Biden said that the United States, together with its allies, is looking for opportunities to return 20 million tons of Ukrainian grain to the world market in order to achieve a reduction in world prices, which have soared to record levels due to military operations in Ukraine.
According to the US Department of Agriculture, in the 2021/22 season, Ukraine accounted for 10% of global wheat exports (Russia's share was 16%). Prices for food and fertilizers in the world against the backdrop of the conflict in Ukraine rose in March by 12.6%, to 159.3 p.— this is a record since 1990. Previously, Biden expressed concern about possible food shortages due to events in Ukraine.
