In the Telegram channel, the pranksters reported that they called the minister under the guise of "African high-ranking officials." He tried to convince them that "Putin wants to take the whole world hostage, and Africa in particular," so the African authorities need to "stand up to Russian and Chinese ambitions on the continent."

In addition, Habeck did not deny that the main portion of grain exported from Ukraine is consumed by European countries, and Africa accounts for only 30%.

He also said that the conflict in Ukraine will last at least another year, so it is necessary to decide how to "fish out as much grain as possible."

Earlier, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution of Germany warned the country's politicians about possible calls from Russian pranksters Vovan and Lexus.
