KHMELYOVO (Bryansk Region), January 27. /TASS/. The 2015 anti-crisis plan includes a number of measures to support Russian agriculture, as well as to regulate agricultural markets, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday.
"We will try to provide additional funds to support agriculture," Prime Minister said, adding that the current draft plan stipulates up to 50 billion rubles ($740 million) for these goals. "However, amid budget constraints we will review this sum during the year," Medvedev said.
Besides, Prime Minister said that "a mechanism will be worked out to partly compensate expenses on seasonal field work and implementation of investment projects." "We’re talking about subsidies to regions that will compensate part of expenses on interest payment in Russian banks," he said, adding that this will enable Russia’s agricultural producers to increase their working capital and start work. "All this must improve the situation with access to borrowings for agricultural producers," Medvedev said.
