Samantha Power, Brandon’s administrator of the US Agency for International Development (USAID), on Sunday said countries outside of Ukraine are feeling “huge cascading effects” of Putin’s war through “spiraling food prices.”
Power celebrated fertilizer shortages during an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
These people don’t even hide it anymore. They just say the quiet part out loud now.
“Fertilizer shortages are real now because Russia is a big exporter of fertilizer and even though fertilizer is not sanctioned, less fertilizer is coming out of Russia. As a result, we are working with countries to think about natural solutions like manure and compost – and this may hasten transitions that would be in the interest for farmers to make anyway,” Power said.
“So, never let a crisis go to waste,” Samantha Power added as she called on Congress to give Ukraine more taxpayer money.
