The Russian Foreign Ministry has warned that the Saudi-led coalition’s plans to launch an assault on Yemen’s biggest port city, Al Hudaydah, will greatly impact the humanitarian situation in the war-torn country.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement published on the ministry’s official website that the coalition’s plans to attack Yemen’s biggest port of Hudaydah is causing serious concerns.

A naval blockade by a Saudi-led coalition carrying out air strikes against the yemeni forces is depriving the population of life-sustaining commodities and services.

Zakharova added that battles in this area “would not only inevitably lead to a mass exodus of the [local] population but would also de facto cut the [Yemeni] capital of Sanaa from… food and humanitarian aid supplies.”

  1. It’s high time to cease this mess. And I don’t give a fuck if KSA are the #1 oil producer, anyway, USA could totally stop any import, Russia is far to be at her maximal production and to have scouted all oil they have, very far, EU, China, Libya and Australia have gigantic shale-gas fields, we simply could stop buying Saudi oil and frankly, even if they tried to lever with their GCC or if we forced them to stop by military means and they decided to embargo oil, trying a new oil crisis again, now we can all say “fuck you”! Anyway, just look what they do with their petrodollars, pfff, what a pity!
