Lavrov tells Blinken the U.S. is breaking promises about food sanctions

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov informed US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Friday that Washington was not keeping its commitments about the exemption from sanctions for Russian food supplies, according to Moscow.

According to a Russian foreign ministry read-out of the call, Lavrov told Blinken that Russia would fulfill all of the objectives of its “special military operation” in Ukraine and that Western armament supply would just prolong the fight.
