MOSCOW, August 12. /TASS/. Russia’s Agriculture Ministry will launch interventions of grain harvested in 2016 on August 19.
"For the purpose of regulating the market of agricultural products, commodities and food the Agriculture Ministry of Russia is starting state purchasing interventions regarding grain harvested in 2016 on August 19," the ministry reported Friday.
