MOSCOW, May 21 (Itar-Tass) - No crisis is likely on the Russian grain market this year, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich told journalists on Tuesday.
“This year, there are no grounds to expect a crisis on the food market,” he said. “We have good expectations. I hope the harvest will be good.”
“It means either increased exports or bigger purchasing intervention,” he noted. According to Dvorkovich, the ministry of agriculture suggests a state agent - Rosselkhozbank - should be engaged to make these interventions. “The bank would not be able to do it by itself, other organizations are to be involved,” he added.
