ROSTOV-ON-DON, March 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s southern Rostov region wants to hand over 500 harvesters produced at the local Rostselmash plant to Crimea to help it step up its agricultural development.
“Crimea does not have its own harvesters. They were thrown over from one Ukrainian region to another during the harvest campaign,” Governor of Rostov Region Vasily Golubev said at a meeting of experts “Business without Barriers” on Wednesday, urging the Russian government to support his initiative.
“We need to send 500 harvesters to Crimea to have the matter settled,” the governor went on to say.
Russia’s Rostov region on Wednesday sent the second shipment of relief aid, including almost 70 tonnes of food and essentials, to Crimea alongside transferring 1.5 million rubles ($41,5 thousand) to a special bank account.
Golubev said that the Rostov region would send a task group to Crimea in late April - early May to start cooperation with Russia’s new constituent entity.
