He accused Russia of causing the world’s food crisis and defended the expansion of the grain export agreement with the country and Ukraine, which has faced Russian invasion for more than six months.

Biden opened his speech talking about the invasion of Ukraine by Russian President Vladimir Putin: “Let’s be clear, a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council invaded the neighbor, tried to erase the sovereign state from the map”.
