Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce says the best way to ease living pressures is for Vladimir Putin to “get the hell out of Ukraine”.
“It would be a great start. This is the source of so many of our problems,” Mr Joyce told Sky News Australia.
“30 per cent of the world’s wheat comes from Ukraine and barley comes from Ukraine and the west of Russia and that filters through to all your food prices, right through to cattle.
“This is all in focus on the actions of a single person deciding to walk into a democracy of 44 million people and basically murder people.”
