MOSCOW, July 30. /TASS/. Agriculture Ministry officials will view video footage of a Russian farmer who promised to burn her crops in protest at lack of state support for the sector, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.
Central Russian Kursk region student and farmer Anastasia Dolgopolova has published an online video address to President Vladimir Putin, threatening to burn her crops after failing to secure bank and government agency support for young farmers.
"I am convinced that our colleagues from the Agriculture Ministry will look into this report because before commenting on something, this information should be checked," Peskov said. Enquiries should also be made into decisions taken when the woman applied for aid, he added.
