Boomerang Blowback: Sanctions On Russia Disrupt Food Supplies
Former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev threatened Friday to restrict the sale and export of Russian food and agricultural products only to countries with friendly relations with Moscow. He said Russia will not supply its food products to its enemies. Mr. Medvedev said, “We will supply food and crops only to our friends…and Russia will sell both for rubles and for their national currency in agreed proportions.” That means Russian crops such as wheat will not be purchased with US dollars. He described food as a quiet but ominous weapon in Russia’s battle with Western nations that have imposed stringent sanctions on Russia.
Have sanctions backfired on the West? Did the US and Europe shoot themselves in the feet by baiting Russia to attack Ukraine so that sanctions could be slapped on Russia to bankrupt the country?

Wondering if there’s a technical situation hard to circumvent that’s causing a lot of the text under the video to be cut off on the right. Maybe it’s how it’s set up by TruNews !?
Wiles and Burkhart are really interesting to listen to, but today am more in the mood for reading.
All the best to Robin
People in Russia-unfriendly countries could really improve their worsening food situation if they got off their butts to do some home gardening.
To be fair, should say this has been happening for a while now with the rise in our grocery bill. There’s a catch though with greenhouses using cheaper polyurethane sheeting over glass, because the pressure is on to reduce use of fossil fuels, and thus plastics.
