Tehran (IP) - Iran's Vice President for Parliamentary Affairs says the government must take the necessary measures to supply the essential goods in the country as the Russian-Ukrainian conflict is prolonged.

Iran PressIran News: In an interview with Iran Press on Sunday, Mohammad Hosseini referred to the Ukrainian crisis, saying the war on the country has changed the conditions.

The two countries used to supply a significant part of edible oil and wheat to most of the countries, but for the time being, they could no longer export these items, Hosseini noted.

He said: "Former volume of production may no longer exist; some countries, such as China and other main exporters, have long ago stockpiled goods or banned the export of some of their products."

Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a military strike on Ukraine on February 24. This development came days after Moscow formally recognized the independence of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics in eastern Ukraine.  

Vladimir Putin has said his military operation aims to " demilitarize Ukraine" and "de-Naziizing" the country.

The war in Ukraine has entered its third month, and so far, 25 countries have sent various military weapons to Kyiv.

The Russians insist they have no intention of occupying Ukraine.
