Calling for an urgent move towards a peace settlement in Ukraine for the sake of “humankind” Widodo was in Kiev to meet the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, where the Indonesian President told him to seek peace.

“The Indonesian Constitution requires that Indonesia always seek to make its own contribution to ensuring peace around the world. This is the context for my visit to Kiev and now to Moscow.” He said at the press conference.

“I said in Kiev, although the current situation is still very difficult, I will still say that it is important to move towards a peace settlement and an open dialogue. I handed President Zelensky’s message to President Putin and said I was ready to help establish contact between the two leaders.” Widodo stated.

He then called for an end to the sanctions on Russian commodities for the sake of humankind.  

“For the sake of humankind, I support the UN efforts to reintegrate Russian food products and fertilisers, and Ukrainian food products into the global supply chains. In particular, with respect to supplies from Ukraine by sea, Mr Putin said that he gave guarantees.” The Russian President as a sign of good faith withdrew the Russian garrison from the Snake Island outpost overlooking the Black Sea.

Putin on his part welcomed Widodo to Moscow and lauded Jakarta and Moscow strategic co-operation in all spheres. Blaming the global food crisis on western nations.

“Western countries are further destabilising global agricultural production by imposing restrictions on Russian and Belarusian fertiliser supplies, impeding exports of Russian grain to world markets, and complicating the insurance of ships with grain and bank payments under trade contracts.” Putin said.

“We certainly intend to continue fulfilling in good faith all of our contractual obligations for the supply of food, fertiliser, energy resources and other critical goods. In this context, we consider it vital to restore the supply chains disrupted by sanctions.” The Russian President stressed.
