Russian satellite news agency, Moscow, May 27 – Dmitry Patrushev, Minister of agriculture of Russia, said at the Russian national food forum held in Sochi that according to the estimation of the Ministry of agriculture, Russia may export 50million tons of grain in the next agricultural year (from July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2023).
Patrushev said that the current global situation has brought new challenges to Russia, and all countries need to take swift measures to deal with it.
“The demand for basic food commodities is growing, especially for cereals. The FAO has also warned that there may be a real problem of world hunger,” he said
Patrushev stressed that in order to enhance world food security, Russia is willing to export its own high-quality products to foreign partners. But he said that in the current situation, this depends to a large extent on logistics. Due to the practices of some international logistics enterprises, the process of transporting Russian grains and other food to final consumers is severely restricted.
