«Today 132 countries around the world are the buyers of Russian grains and the Ministry should make every effort to preserve the status of Russia as one of the largest global suppliers of grains. In particular, in 2019 the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance has work to be done to ensure quality and safety of grains and products of processing, including those for export» – noted the minister.

This work will be continued in the current year» – emphasized D. Patrushev.
