VOLGOGRAD, April 05 /ITAR-TASS/. The federal government would ensure modernization of Crimea's agro-industrial sector, Russian Prime Minister and the United Russia party's leader Dmitry Medvedev assured.
The premier noted that problems in Crimea would be solved promptly, and promising sectors, such as grape growing, would develop.
"Among priority tasks for the next few months is planning of the Crimean Peninsula's agrarian potential development," he said.
"When you get under such conditions that exist in Crimea now, you understand how the development of the agro-industrial complex in our country developed in recent years. I feel even pride," Medvedev noted.
"So we must help our new territories and our close people who have returned to our country," he said.
"We need to modernize the agro-industrial complex of the Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol," the premier said, noting that current issues during the farming season to provide fuel, lubricants and agricultural machines will be settled promptly. Combines had been already found to deliver to Crimea, he added.
"We will settle other issues as well. There are promising sectors, such as viniculture, we will develop all," the premier assured.
