MOSCOW, March 7. /TASS/. The Security Council of Russia will revise the national Food Security Doctrine, particularly taking into consideration anti-Russian sanctions, press service of the Council told reporters on Thursday. This was discussed at a meeting of the interdepartmental commission on security in the economic and the social sphere.
"The Food Security Doctrine of the Russian Federation will be revised during 2019," the press service says. "The need to revise the Food Security Doctrine is associated with changes in the socioeconomic state of the country, forming new risks caused by economic sanctions introduced against Russia, greater openness of the domestic agro-food market, deepening of integration processes within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union, and creation of common customs space," the press service said. "The development model of the agro-industrial and fishery complexes is changing also from the import substituting to the export-orienting one," it said.
Measures presented in the paper and related to implementation of the government policy for provision of food security are generally sufficient to solve tasks for neutralization of external and internal national security threats in this sphere, participants in the meeting said. "Furthermore, the draft Doctrine corresponds to documents of strategic planning in the national security provision sphere," the Security Council said.
