Crimea to refocus grain exports to Russia

The ban on the imports of commodities to the EU from the Crimea, imposed by the EU, will not affect the local grain producers, declared Nikolai Polyushkin, Minister of Agriculture of the Republic of Crimea, on June 25.

Previously, the Crimea exported grains to Ukraine, where it was transited to the Middle East region and other countries. But to date traders will reorient Crimean early grains towards the Russian Federation, said the Minister.

At the same time, N.Polyushkin added that in the current year rather significant share of harvested grains will be likely sold on the local market.
