The Russian government will allocate 1.4 billion rubles for agricultural companies in the Far East that were affected by natural disasters.
"The government will allocate almost 1.4 billion rubles for this purpose, of which over one billion rubles will go to the Amur Region. The damage to crops, livestock, infrastructure and property was heaviest there", - reads the information at the website of the Ministry of Agriculture.
In addition, farmers of Yakutia, Jewish Autonomous Region, Trans-Baikal and Khabarovsk regions will be able to benefit from compensations.
According to the country's Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, more than 200 agro-industrial organizations and three thousand local residents with private subsidiary plots will receive funding. They will be able to repay lease payments and interest on preferential short-term and investment loans, he added.
