The volume of exports of agricultural products from Russia by the end of 2022 may reach $40 billion, which is $2.9 billion more than in 2021. Dmitry Patrushev, the head of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation, said this in a conversation with journalists during the All-Russian Field Day.
According to him, agricultural exports increased by 20% in comparison with the same period in 2021, which makes it possible to forecast positive dynamics by the end of 2022.

Patrushev added that in 2022, the ministry records an increase in supplies "in almost all directions." In particular, we are talking about the shipment of fat and oil, meat and dairy products, fish and seafood. In addition, it is planned to increase the volume of supplies, including by expanding its presence in Africa, the Persian Gulf, Southeast Asia and other regions.
