MOSCOW, February 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree on Russia’s accession to the Food Assistance Convention adopted in London, UK, on April 25, 2012.

The document was placed at the government’s website.

“After Russia joins the Convention, its votes in the International Grains Council will grow from 72 to 77, which will strengthen the country’s role as a key player in the organization and will contribute to promotion of its interests on the global grain market,” the cabinet said.

“Russia’s participation in the Convention will emphasize its status as a donor country and confirm its intention to fulfill decisions taken on providing assistance in ensuring global food security and the fight against hunger in the world,” the Cabinet added.

Russia’s annual contributions to the United Nations World Food Program exceed $30 million (in 2009 — $26.8 million, in 2010 — $32 million, in 2011 — $37.6 million and in 2012 — $38 million).
