According to the Agency, many other providers also have limited supplies, so the world faces serious food shortages and consequently higher prices. Purchases interested countries such as Egypt and Turkey. They bought Russian wheat, while it was possible.
In turn, the Russian experts do not exclude that the export ban will take advantage of other suppliers, such as European and American.
In addition to wheat, Russia stopped exports of rye, meslin, barley and corn. The Ministry of agriculture explained such actions with the possibility to meet the domestic demand in grain. Exceptions are made only for the number of post-Soviet countries.
