Russia has finally issued a response to Kenya amid concerns that they are to be blamed for the escalating fuel and food prices that have been experienced since they invaded Ukraine.

In an interview with Russia's Ambassador to Kenya Dmitry Maksimychev, he maintained that over the recent years, the relationship with Kenya was improving after the historic meeting between Presidents Vladimir Putin and Uhuru Kenyatta.

However, according to the Ambassador, Russia was not to be blamed for the acute food and oil shortage that was being experienced by Kenya and other African states.

Dmitry maintained that the growth of food prices started several years ago and blamed the US and the EU for having inadequate policies that they could implement during a global financial crisis.

"Basically, what they did was printing money, borrowing, speculating, and printing money again. Inevitably, this led to inflation. There are certain economic laws that even the US and the EU cannot violate with impunity." he stated.

Maksimychev further argued that they used the Ukraine war crisis to wage economic war on Russia and isolated them by denying them access to financial and transport services which led to shrinking offers of food and fertilizers.
