NOVO-OGAREVO, November 21. /TASS/. Russia will continue providing help to countries facing the food shortage due to the West’s reckless policy, President Vladimir Putin said on Monday.
"We are helping and will continue helping countries facing the food deficit due to imbalances that are the result of unadvised - without any exaggeration, unprofessional policy of certain Western countries," the President said.
The country is providing itself with the majority of commodities important for food security, the head of state noted.
"We are supporting the food security by the majority of key parameters at present: grain, sugar, vegetable oil, fish products and plenty of other components," the President said. "I would like to separately highlight successes of our producers of meat and meat products. Further to domestic market saturation, our animal breeding and poultry breeding companies are exporting their products to more than 110 countries," Putin added.
