Biden Issues Warning: ‘Food Shortages’ Are ‘Gonna Be Real’ Because of Ukraine War

Democrat President Joe Biden has issued a warning that “food shortages” are “gonna be real” due to Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

Biden made the remarks Thursday while addressing G-7 leaders in Europe.

World leaders discussed food shortages as a result of the war in Ukraine, warning that food shortages are coming because both Ukraine and Russia “have been the breadbasket” of Europe and some of the largest producers of wheat.

“Can you say whether there’s the conversation is a turn to the subject of food shortages and what the US will do to address wheat shortages in particular, as a result of this?” a reporter asked Biden.

“With regard to food shortages,” Biden said.

“Yes, we did talk about food shortages.

“And, and it’s gonna be real.

“The price of these sanctions is not just imposed upon Russia, it’s imposed upon an awful lot of countries as well, including European countries and our country as well.

“And because both Russia and Ukraine have been the breadbasket of Europe in terms of wheat, for example, just give one example.

“But we had a long discussion in the G7 with the, with both the United States, which has a significant third-largest producer of wheat in the world, as well as Canada, which is also a major, major producer.

“And we both talked about how we could increase, and disseminate more rapidly, food shortages.

“In addition to that, we talked about urging all European countries and everyone else ends trade restrictions on sending, limitations on sending food abroad.

“And so we are in the process of working out with our European friends, what it would be, what it would take to help alleviate the concerns relative to food shortages.
