Food security; An excuse for the globalization of the Ukrainian war

The remarks made in recent days by Western officials against Russia, using the key word global food crisis, are a new attempt to increase militarization and globalize the Ukraine crisis to involve more countries in the war.

NOURNEWS - The war in Ukraine has entered its third month, and in addition to what is happening on the ground between Russia and Ukraine, the actions of some Western countries, especially the United States and Britain, and senior EU officials, have given significant dimensions to this event.

Newsweek recently reported that the United States was preparing a plan to destroy Russia's fleet in the Black Sea, indicating that the White House was working on a plan to deploy advanced anti-ship missiles to the Ukrainian military. Increase the country to deliver major blows to Russia's fleet and end its naval siege.

Coinciding with the release of these reports, the US Senate in an almost rare move on Thursday approved a $ 40 billion bailout package for Ukraine.

In the US Senate vote on the bill, 86 senators supported it and 11 Republican senators opposed it.

The US government also signed a $ 100 million military aid package to Ukraine, signed by the US President, including artillery, radars and other military equipment.

Meanwhile, at the same time as the Senate passed Biden, the White House hosted Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Anderson and Finnish President Sauli Niinisto, both of whom have recently formally applied for NATO membership.

On Friday, US President Joe Biden kicked off a five-day tour of East Asia that includes visits to countries such as South Korea and Japan.

"Although some of these movements can be interpreted as US regional action against China, the ultimate goal of these trips seems to be to align these countries with the United States against Russia."

Tokyo recently announced that it would support sanctions against Russia despite the difficulties.

Following the West's military action against Russia, British Foreign Secretary Liz Terrace has also hinted at the possibility of arming Moldova to counter the Russians.

According to the Guardian; He said he was in talks with his international allies to send modern, standard NATO weapons to Moldova to prepare for a Russian-led invasion of the region.

They claim that Moldova, although not currently a NATO member, is concerned that Putin's next target will be to attack the country in southwestern Ukraine.

All of this is happening at a time when the United States is focusing on a new keyword called "global food security" in reference to the Ukraine war and the restriction of food production and exports by Russia and Ukraine.

In this context; Explaining the need to intensify military action against Russia, Newsweek wrote: "In addition to providing a tactical advantage to assist Ukraine's war effort, the supply of more weapons will have global consequences and pave the way for a resumption of shipments of grain and other agricultural products. »

in the meantime; In a statement, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken accused Russia of using food as a weapon and taking hostage the grains of millions of people around the world to bring Ukraine to its knees, which could be an attempt to raise global awareness of Russia's role in threatening global food security.

"Stop the war, trade and maritime transport in a large area of ​​the Black Sea, make navigation in the region insecure, and restrict the export of Ukrainian agricultural products," he told a UN Security Council meeting in Washington. "It's jeopardizing the world food supply chain."

The Western media and propaganda game was complemented by remarks by EU foreign policy chief Joseph Borrell.

In a similar statement on Friday, May 20, at a time when Europeans are experiencing a difficult economic situation, in a speech that had the color and smell of provoking world public opinion, he once again warned that food around the world due to war in Ukraine has become rare.

"If people and governments are forced to pay more for food, they will have to spend money on education, health and other social services," Borrell said after meeting with EU development ministers to look into food shortages and inflation. "Payments will decrease, and this will exacerbate the situation of poverty and injustice."

The EU foreign policy chief stressed that the main reason for this situation was Russia's military invasion of Ukraine, not Western sanctions against Russia.

Experts from the European Union and the German government have also claimed in recent days that Russia is blocking grain exports to Ukraine, whose main destinations are Asia and North Africa, and that this has led to a sharp rise in food prices.

The totality of statements made by Western officials against Russia in recent days, using the keyword food crisis, although it can be used for purposes such as justifying the shipment of Western weapons to Ukraine, justifying Western irresponsibility to the flood of refugees and asylum seekers from Ukraine or other countries. Other than Afghanistan and Africa, or justifying an increase in the US military presence in Europe, but there is an important principle behind it, and that is the West's struggle to turn the Ukraine war into a war at the expense of more countries.

Such a strategy is more in line with the claims made by British officials in the early days of the war, which indicated the possibility of Ukraine's war turning into World War III.

Recently, some US and European officials have repeatedly spoken of the length of the war, which at the time may have been seen as an analysis of the war process, but the practical behavior of Westerners and their insistence on using the keyword food crisis and guiding world public opinion. Towards a Russian threat to global food security suggests that earlier Western rhetoric about the possibility of a protracted globalization of the Russia-Ukraine war has not been an analysis but a goal since the Ukraine-Russia conflict was designed and fueled.

More precisely; Some Western countries, such as the United States and the United Kingdom, have long sought to escape the domestic and global crisis by involving the world in crisis and war.

Turning the Ukraine war into a global war under the pretext of the international food crisis is a new concern that can be seen in the behavior and speech of Western officials these days.
