"The Russian President also sharpened the issue of the dangerous nature of the ongoing pumping of with Western weapons, warning in this regard of the risks of further destabilization of the situation and aggravation of the humanitarian crisis," the Kremlin's press service said, RT reported.

Putin also announced Moscow's readiness to facilitate the search for options for the unhindered export of grain.

It is noted that the Russian leader explained the reasons for the difficulties with food supplies, which were the result of the erroneous economic policy of Western countries.

"For its part, Russia is ready to help find options for the unhindered export of grain, including the export of Ukrainian grain from the Black Sea ports," the Kremlin said.

Earlier, Putin, in a conversation with Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, noted that Russia is ready to help overcome the food crisis through the export of grain and fertilizers, but for this it is necessary to remove politically motivated restrictions imposed by Western countries.
