Battle for sugar! The “Magnet” store in the town of Kasimov (Ryazan region, Russia).
Brazil under Jair Bolsonaro exported nearly 200,000 tons of raw sugar to Russia this week. At least five ships departed with double the amount the Eastern European country normally imports annually.
Expect that and more to change if leftist Lula da Silva should win the presidential elections in October in this country.
Sanctions imposed on Russia following the Ukraine conflict have increased the demand for sugar and other staples in the country. As a result, supermarket shelves are already empty due to stockpiling.
