Russia and China Sign Record Grain Supply Deal

Russia and China signed the largest grain supply deal ever on Wednesday. The contract involves Russia’s ept grain export company and China’s Chengtong state corporation. It is worth about $25.7 billion and will see 70 million tons of Russian grains, legumes and oilseeds exported to China each year for 12 years.

Russia said that in 2022 to 2023, it exported about 60 million tons of grain to China. That record will be eclipsed by the new agreement.

Replacing Ukraine: Russia’s withdrawal from the Black Sea Grain Initiative this year prevented Ukraine from exporting grain. The ensuing blockade inflated food costs for China, which had imported more Ukrainian grain than any other country. It urged Russia to renew the deal.

Now China can replace the grain it once received from Ukraine with Russian goods.

Uniting Asia: Wednesday’s deal is another development in the ever strengthening Russo-Chinese relationship—a relationship foretold in the Holy Bible. Scripture prophesies that Russian President Vladimir Putin will unite Asia under his command and that China will be his main partner in this alliance (Ezekiel 38).

This massive coalition will form the largest army in the history of mankind (Revelation 9:16)—an army that will play a vital role in the soon-coming World War III.
