“There is reason to believe that the food crisis in the world will continue to grow,” Putin said.

He added that the crisis can reach extreme forms.

According to the UN, in September, food prices in the world reached their highest level since 2011.

Over the past 12 months, food prices on the global market have risen by almost a third.

The biggest increase was seen in the cost of vegetable oils, grains, sugar and dairy products.

Earlier, Putin spoke about the civilization crisis.
