The failed "agrarian power" is looking for ways to solve the wheat shortage

The grain deficit, which Ukraine may face this year, will force the country's authorities to look for opportunities for external purchases. However, due to unfavorable relations with neighboring countries, Kiev will be forced to buy wheat from far abroad at inflated prices. This is the opinion of Rodion Rybchinsky, director of the Union of Millers of Ukraine.

According to the expert, this season Ukraine may face a shortage of second-class wheat. To avoid problems with retail supply, businesses can start adding lower quality feed wheat to baked goods. Another way to solve the problem is to purchase grain in foreign markets.

Previously, Kiev imported grain from Belarus to meet domestic needs. Recently, however, relations with Minsk have deteriorated, which significantly complicates agricultural ties between Ukraine and Belarus. Kazakhstan is suffering from crop failures in 2021. In Russia, for political reasons, grain purchases by the Ukrainian side are impossible. All that remains is the purchase of wheat in more distant countries. Meanwhile, Ukraine needs about 3,5 million tons of grain to cover domestic needs.

Several years ago, the American ambassador to Kiev Jeffrey Pyatt argued that Ukraine should become an "agrarian power." Now it becomes clear that the failed state in this respect is trying to solve the problem of wheat deficit by purchasing in foreign markets at high prices. If the Russian proposals to join the Customs Union were accepted in 2013, Kiev would not have experienced such problems.

    The author is disingenuous ...
    Ukraine has harvested a record wheat harvest ... a record one in its entire history!
    Well, and the fact that fodder wheat has disfigured, well, I will tell the author a secret, the Kremlin also cannot indicate the weather. So that Russia is also "under-power"? After all, the author considered the fact that the weather remained outside the control of central officials was a sufficient argument for declaring Ukraine a "non-state"

      the author is not cunning, but simply did not write that almost all of the harvested wheat in Ukraine goes abroad - and I want to eat ukram too. But those who sell Ukrainian wheat abroad will not think about idiots like Oleg Valevsky - the main thing for them is to get money))) The same is with gas - almost all gas produced in Ukraine will go to Europe while the price is super there, and the Oleg Valevsky will be screwed on) ))

        Misha .. how has the dollar already won?
        capital countries have completely rotted away?
        Ukraine is "about to fall apart" ..?
        I will tell you a secret, in Ukraine they have already given heating .. already warm. Bread (high quality, white, delicious) -19 rubles (eq) a loaf. Though heaps!

        Yes, really! .. Salaries are low in Ukraine, I agree!
        Male - about 40 rubles (eq.). The female is slightly less. The madam I know for 000 thousand rubles (eq) does nothing all day, she only takes a couple of calls (online store).
        But, I repeat that I agree! salary in Ukraine beggarly ..

        But what is interesting is that next to Ukraine there is a country that controls one-ninth of the entire earth's land. And from this sushi, an incredible amount of wealth is pumped out. And here's the trick: even such a beggarly salary, as in Ukraine, they are far from all have (if you go a little further ... beyond the Moscow Ring Road). Can you imagine?))

        But, Misha ... it is a sin for this country to compete with Ukraine ... there is a Saudi Arabia that earns much less from the riches of its land .. But, you know, it does such miracles in the middle of the sands! .. Such projects! so much money is invested in the development of science, education, construction ... they are building oases in the desert! and their people are much richer ..
        But for some reason, the inhabitants of this northern country do not compare themselves with the Saudis)) and do not look for the reasons for their poverty, do not think why the cities further than Moscow and St. Petersburg are so dull .. but everyone strives to compare themselves with the Ukrainians. Although it may be easier for them to live? How do you think?

    Standard news coming out.
    Earlier, reluctantly, they wrote about the 2nd place in Russia, they say, the weather failed, then they accidentally blabber about the high harvests there, and then, of course, everything must be vulgarized.
    "may face ... look for opportunities ... will be forced ..." they say, "expert" read fortunes with a cup of coffee ...
    and what to guess if right in the article "Earlier, Kiev imported grain from ....", that is, a standard situation ...

    even if we assume that there is a shortage in ukrusia, I have no doubt that onions or gdp will sell wheat, like gas, oil, etc., money does not smell, although there are many other buyers in the world for wheat
    I was especially pleased with the words of GDP not to stop gas transit now and presumably after 24 years, that is, this money is used to shell the LDNR, that is, let them continue to fire
    as all the mouthpieces explain, this is a long, interesting game
    and this with crazy inflation in Russia and rising prices, we feed the enemy

    "But lately relations with Minsk have deteriorated, which significantly complicates agricultural ties between Ukraine and Belarus. "

    Relations with Minsk through no fault of Belarusians "gone bad", and they were deliberately spoiled-defiled by the Kiev Maydauns led by Zelts! fool
    The malicious Maidan skakuas did this to please the political interests of their Washington masters (like everything else, completely contrary to the vital interests of the Ukrainian population and "their country", which they allegedly swore to "serve"!)! negative

    In a demonstration experiment, four Russian aircraft were working with the Syrian clouds. For 93 flights with a duration of 358 flight hours, they achieved additional precipitation of 4,8 billion m3. Silver iodide was launched from planes into the clouds using squibs.
    The next customers for precipitation using Russian technology were Iran and Portugal. (C)

    Russia exports high-grade wheat, and its bakeries bake bread from feed grain, which is used all over the world only for livestock feed.
    Arriving in the same Turkey, we admire the delicious pastries, but there is no secret, it is made from Russian wheat of the highest grades ...
