MOSCOW, August 22./ITAR-TASS/. Russia may increase grain exports to 25 million tons in view of a good yield of crops, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told a session reviewing agribusiness issues.
“The harvesting campaign confirms that we can fully meet our own requirements, lay in a stock and even increase exports if we will see it expedient, as crops are expected at about 100 million tons,” Medvedev said.
“We have upgraded our forecast. This level of production makes it possible for us to increase export potentials to 25 million tons and even more, and lay in a stock,” he said.
