India, China, South Africa, most South American countries.. In fact, most countries have refused to abide by the US-led trade sanctions against Russia. For good reason. These countries do not only rely on fossil fuels from Russia. Russia remains the largest grain exporter in the world. While grain exports from Russia and Ukraine were suspended, there was immense fear of global famine. Russia also exports fertilizer, weapons, cheese and other goods. Because Russia exports so much fertilizer, the suspension of fertilizer exports has led to as much as a 300% increase in fertilizer prices, which resulted in many farmers reducing fertilizer use, which has reduced crop…
