MOSCOW, June 25 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Agriculture Ministry sees no reason to ban grain export, Agriculture Minister Nikolai Fyodorov said.
“We see no prerequisites for scaring anyone with embargo of other levers that can influence something,” he said on Monday, June 25.
He said “there are no grounds” for imposing a ban on grain export in Russia.
According to the minister, Russia can export about 20 million tonnes of grain this year. “I am confident that our export potential is no less than 20 million tonnes,” he said.
