NOVOSIBIRSK, August 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russia will preserve its grain export potential this year, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev declared at a meeting with regional activists of the United Russia party on Tuesday.
The result Russian achieved in 2010 was a little over a 60 million tons; this year more grain will be harvested, and Russia will preserve a definite export potential, Medvedev said.
The current task now is to ensure sufficient fodder for our cattle breeding industry, rather than think about exports, Medvedev noted. The government is prepared to take prompt measures at any moment if necessary for stabilization of the grain market and ensuring support to agricultural producers, Medvedev stressed. Depending on the situation in regions and if a need arises the government will make a decision on grain interventions and other measures of support to concrete farms, the prime minister said. We have some experience already - in 2010 we managed to keep the situation under control even under more difficult conditions, Medvedev said.
In the first half of 2012 grain exports from the Russian Federation totaled 9.2 million tons, the Russian Economic Development Ministry said with reference to the results of monitoring of Russia's economic development in January-June, 2012. In 2010-2012 grain exports totaled 27,4 million tons, which was a historic maximum for grain exports.
Russian Agricultural Minister Nikolai Fyodorov said that this year Russia would be able to export 18-20 million tons of grain, but if unfavorable weather continues in a number of regions grain exports will be narrowed to 16-18 million tons, Fyodorov said.
