Actions have consequences. One of the consequences of our trade sanctions is to increase wheat and corn prices significantly. There are currently Africans who are on the brink of starvation and the increased food prices will increase starvation?
Is our current position "It's okay if 1,000,000 Africans starve if we can prevent 100,000 Ukrainians from not dying in the war"?
Are there models that tell us how much people are likely to starve as a result of our actions? Are there wheat futures that we can use to tell us future wheat prices and economic models that estimate how many people will starve?
