Large Russian Grain Harvest to Support Higher Exports

Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting on economic issues on Thursday that Western countries share the blame for the global consequences of sanctions against Russia, including possible hunger in a number of countries, because they are willing to sacrifice the rest of the world for their dominance.
He emphasised that a lot of nations are already facing hunger concerns, and that if sanctions against Russia are maintained, the EU may face difficult-to-reverse repercussions.
“The blame for this entirely and completely rests with the elites of the Western countries who for the sake of preserving their global domination are ready to sacrifice the rest of the world,” the Russian leader stated.
In turn, he noted, Russia is confident in dealing with foreign issues, owing to recent years of competent macroeconomic policy and structural measures aimed at boosting economic sovereignty, technical and agricultural security.
“Our production companies are gradually filling in domestic market niches freed up after unscrupulous partners left, including basic goods, industrial and service equipment, construction and agricultural machinery,” Putin noted.
Russia currently expects to harvest 130 million tonnes of grain in 2022, including 87 million tonnes of wheat, Putin told a meeting of top economic officials in Moscow.

Russia produced a record grain crop 133.5 million tonnes in 2020, including 85.9 million tonnes of wheat. The crop was smaller in 2021.

“If this happens, which we are counting on, it could be an all-time record for the wheat crop in Russian history,” Putin said.
