Russia to provide the Crimea with the target program of food aid
On May 8, 2014 the Ministry of Agricultural Policy and Food of Russia proposes to provide the Crimea and Sevastopol with the target program of food aid. The stated issue will allow to subsidize the purchase of the several food products.
According to the monitoring of the Ministry, there are no problems with the wholesale and retail trade of food and essential commodities in the Crimea. Thus, the domestic production exceeds the annual demand of 2.5 mln habitants and 5 mln vacationers. The region is provided with grains, vegetables (excluding potatoes) and gourds, and also bread and bakery products.
At the same time, the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food in cooperation with the Ministry of Agriculture and the Federal State Reserve Agency founded the complex of measures in order to guarantee the further food safety in the region.
Thus, the Ministry starts to establish connections between the Crimean trade organizations, producers and Russian and Ukrainian suppliers.
