MOSCOW, February 14 – RIA Novosti. Russian President Vladimir Putin criticized subsidies for grain exports amid rising world prices.
“But if we occupy a certain niche on the world market and prices for the same grain grow there, we know what is inside our country, how bakery products are consumed, while we continue to subsidize exports! You see, right? Well, prices have grown. But why subsidize? ” – Putin said at a meeting with editors of Russian media, footage of which was shown on “Russia 24”.
