Ukraine's President Zelenskyy says Russia's blockade causing famine

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Friday in his late-night video address that Russia's blockade of Ukrainian ports is causing a large-scale food crisis, as he questioned countries that delayed placing sanctions on Moscow and postponed aid to his country.

Russian officials are openly threatening the world that there will be famine in dozens of countries, he said. His comments came after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country is not a favorable opinion of a move by Finland and Sweden to join NATO. Ministers from both countries are expected to attend an informal meeting of NATO foreign ministers in Berlin later today.
