    So grain harvests this year in Russia was rather poor compared to last year due to weather. Too many cold snaps. But grain exports we're higher this year so far than last year.

    So in the media, in Russia, they are talking about bread price increases. One of the reasons was because of USD going up. At first I laughed and thought why would that matter? Then they explained it was that they still imoort majority of the equipment in the convectionary industry. Plus they mentioned that grains left to buy (cheap local) is of very poor quality. Which is now something Russia needs to battle. Exports of grains are fine. But shouldn't be at the expense of the locals. They should be given access first to top grains.

    There is a lot of work to be done.

    What I don't get is, why are there not any more engineering companies in Russia? They could be owned by the universities and make tons of money having engineering students design and build machinery for specific industries or manufacturers. I know Germany does this

    The rise in price of Urals oil in 2018 will bring another 1.1 trillion rubles to the budget of the Russian Federation

    This follows from the draft amendments to the country's budget for the current year.

    Moscow. October 23. INTERFAX.RU - The increase in the price of Urals oil in 2018 will increase the oil and gas revenues of the federal budget by 1.099 trillion rubles. Such data are contained in the explanatory note to the draft amendments to the budget of the Russian Federation of the current year, which Interfax has familiarized with. The change in the dollar exchange rate will give an additional 319.3 billion rubles. Changes in the volumes of oil, gas condensate and natural gas production will increase revenues from oil and gas by 44.277 billion rubles, changes in the volume of exports of oil, petroleum products and gas by 36.4 billion rubles. In general, oil and gas revenues of the federal budget will increase in 2018 by 1,582 trillion rubles, to 8.818 trillion rubles. At the same time, the base oil and gas revenues, calculated on the basis of the base oil price of $ 40.8 per barrel, will increase by 228.7 billion rubles, to 4.723 trillion rubles. Additional oil and gas revenues (credited at the end of the year to the National Wealth Fund) will rise by 1.353 trillion rubles, to 4.093 trillion rubles. wrote:

    Hahaha... Vann... it wont be the end of the world if Brazil exits BRICS... it is not NATO or the EU... there wont be a massive effort to undermine your democracy if you decide to leave...

    If the people of Brazil want to leave BRICS then they can do so... if they want to choose the US over Russia and China and Venezuela and India and South Africa then that is completely up to them and their government.

    To be honest the I and the C in BRICS represents almost half of the worlds population, so I personally would not leave such a powerful and potentially influential group, but Brazil wont stay if it is bullied and it could do more harm than good if it stayed and was unhappy or a stooge for the US or EU.

    Turkey has already said it would like to join BRICS... I don't think they were all that keen simply because with a lot of countries joining it would become unwieldy and weak in terms of getting things done and systems and approaches to things worked out, but if Brazil wants to leave I am sure they could replace them with Turkey... TRICS?

    BRICS is still rather new and is growing and developing... if a country wants to leave then that is fine... you can't force a country to join such an organisation against its will... it isn't NATO you know...

    So grain harvests this year in Russia was rather poor compared to last year due to weather. Too many cold snaps. But grain exports we're higher this year so far than last year.

    In the 1980s and 1990s Russia imported a lot of American grain and there was a special trade agency set up in Moscow to manage the sales of US grain to Russia... it recently closed its doors because Russia didn't need American grain sales any more and was exporting record amounts of the stuff...

    The western "experts" claimed Brasil would leave BRICS after Temer was put into office. Didn´t happen.

    The best is how the pseudo-liberals in the west cry about a right-wing politican becoming president of Brasil, but the did nothing to stop the politicla/judiciary coup against Russeff because she was to left (= didn´t "privatize" enough of brasils wealth).

    Quote from a russian TV report (from Russian Insider):

    "Let's take a look at the statistics which President Putin shared earlier in Stavropol Krai. The Russian food sovereignty goals have been met and even exceeded in a number of instances. Here are some figures for grains. Take a look. In order to reach food self-sufficiency, the goal for the production of grains was set to 95%.
    Instead, the figure is now at 170%, which means that we can continue to increase our exports. What else do we have here? The goal for sugar was 80%, while the actual production is at 105% due to high demand. The goal for vegetable oil was 80%, however, the production rate has reached 153%. What else? The goal for meat and meat products was 85%, the production is at 93%. We're seeing some imports here. But even though we continue to import meat, it looks like soon enough there will be so much of it that we'll begin to export it."

    that is mostly true, but how many of the grains are good quality vs bad? The rest isn't in question, but grains are always in question.

    Anyway, one thing Russia lacks it the number of larger producers of end food goods. Which could be very competitive in other countries.

    Russia dramatically reduced imports of sugar, milk and meat

    Russia is almost completely self-sufficient in the most popular products of the consumer basket. So, today all the sugar for the domestic market, the country produces itself, moreover, became a net exporter. Almost 50 percent decreased the export of the dried milk, pork and poultry on the shelves of the stores, mostly domestic. Accelerated pace is displaced and imported fruits and vegetables — in this year we have record growth of the harvest of greenhouse vegetables.
    Beets instead of raw

    The leader in imports was raw sugar from which to produce the final product — sugar and refined sugar. In January-July imports compared to the same period last year decreased by 62.1 per cent. To such conclusion the company "FinExpertiza", analyzing the dynamics of imports for the first seven months of this year.

    Sugar produced from raw sugar or from sugar beets, which Russia has in abundance. Even 20 years ago, about 70 percent of sugar produced from imported raw sugar, now the share of raw sugar fell to three to five percent.

    The last ship with it's raw Russia in August 2016, since no one ton. First, taking into account import duties raw sugar uncompetitive. Secondly, the country is pursuing an active policy of import substitution, and the production of beet sugar beats records.

    "In recent years its production has increased by 5.2 times — from 1.3 to 6.6 million tons per year", — told RIA Novosti Yevgeny Ivanov, leading expert of the Institute for agricultural market studies. According to him, the imported product entering the country today — a small container of party "exotics" such as brown cane sugar.

    Closing the domestic demand in the Sahara, Russia focused on exports: exports in 2017-2018, the country was the second season in a row has become a net exporter of white sugar, shipped abroad nearly 240 thousand tonnes.

    Given raw Russia for 16 years, moved from a net import to 5.28 million tonnes in 2001-2002, a net export to 0.23 million tonnes in 2017-2018, said ICARUS.

    According to the Director of Institute of agrarian marketing Elena Tyurina, now operates a separate programme for the development of the export the sugar products, molasses (syrup) and raisins, and the demand for sugar beet pulp very much improves from the EU.

    Took the ice cream

    According to "FinExpertiza" half decreased volumes of import of dried milk and cream — key ingredients for the confectionery industry. For the year — minus 46.1%. This is partly due to restrictions on supplies from Belarus and import of raw milk, including dry milk and serum from the Federal Republic has been prohibited since June. However, according to market analysts, the shortage of raw materials, the Russian confectioners are not threatened: Russia has enough of its stockpile of dry milk and dry whey.

    "Last year, these products have produced very much, and now the stocks are actively used," — said Natalia Penkova, senior expert of the dairy market in IKARE.

    As for drinking milk, your own product is not enough, there is some deficiency. In this regard, increased imports of palm oil: the process of substitution of milk fat with vegetable. In January-July, palm oil became the most imported food product, second only to bananas. Such volume of import of palm oil is primarily due to the price. This is the cheapest product from the oil-and-fat counterparts. However, the harmfulness of this product is rather a myth, experts say.

    "No substitute of milk fat nor milk are not damaging to the health of the consumer", — says Sergey Protein, food chemical engineer. Palm oil is a valid ingredient in milk products. By law the contents of this oil should not exceed 50%. Is it safe it? The expert says: proven that palm oil is less harmful than milk fat.

    Meat and vegetables


    Import of meat to Russia for the year decreased significantly, according to analysts In any case, available in stores poultry and pork is 95 percent Russian products. Growth of domestic production of pork and poultry is becoming less and less possibilities for import.

    According to the Federal customs service, import of meat to Russia during the first half of 2018 decreased by 1.7 times compared to the same period last year, excluding shipments from countries of the EEU.

    More likely decreased the supply of pork: for the first six months imported 36,3 thousand tons against 147,7 thousand tons a year earlier.

    "The meat we have almost reached the level of self-sufficiency and developing export program," — noted in the Institute of agrarian marketing.

    But experts warn that winter prices for meat products will grow in the range of three to five percent is influenced by seasonal demand and because of the rising cost of feed due to poor grain yield.

    This year the Ministry of agriculture is expecting a record harvest of greenhouse vegetables. It is expected that production will reach one million tons and will exceed indicators of last year by 12.3 percent. But while fruits and vegetables remain the most import-dependent segment of the market. So, in the fall and winter 50-60% of the tomatoes in the shops is imported. In the summer prices have dropped, and in October began a seasonal increase. Peak the price tag will reach during the new year holidays in January and February, but may will decline: the market will leave the domestic tomatoes grown in the open ground.

    This I find interesting:

    https://rostec.ru/news/kalashnikov-nachal-seriynyy-vypusk-medtekhniki-dlya-lecheniya-insulta/

    "Kalashnikov" began serial production of medical equipment for the treatment of stroke

    It really does seem Kalashnikov company will be a multipurpose industry.  Currently they do:

    - Guns (obviously)
    - Electric motors and electric motorbikes and even quad/vehicles
    - Clothing (They probably hire just a Russian textile company to make the shirts for them)
    - Toy's (models and what not)
    - Drones
    - Now medical equipment.
    - Boats too (thanks Hole)

    When was the last time a western bank did anything like that...

    It is usually US taxpayers bailing out western banks when they make loans that get defaulted... but of course the CEOs of the banks still get their multi million dollar bonuses...

    Trump thinks Russia wants economic aid from the USA

    The US president also resented that Germany is paying Russia for building the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, but at the same time asks Washington to protect it from Moscow.
    WASHINGTON, October 28th. / Tass /. Russia wants to receive economic assistance from the United States, given the wealth that Donald Trump has achieved during his presidency. This point of view the American leader himself expressed on Saturday during a speech in front of his supporters in Illinois.

    “Do not forget that Russia wants our help economically. After all, we have achieved such wealth: I did a really good job. Russia wants our participation,” Trump said.

    Russia, India and Iran will create an alternative to the Suez Canal‍

    MOSCOW, November 1 - RIA News. Russia, India and Iran will hold a meeting in November to discuss the launch of the North-South international transport corridor, the Iranian television channel Press TV reported .

    It is noted that the new transport corridor with a length of 7.2 thousand kilometers will be a cheaper and shorter alternative to the Suez Canal.
    The new project will involve both the railway and the water transport. Goods will be shipped from India to the Iranian city of Bandar Abbas on the coast of the Persian Gulf, then they will be shipped to Bandar Enzel on the coast of the Caspian Sea, from where they will go by sea to Astrakhan, and then by rail to Europe.

    It is assumed that this transport corridor will reduce the time and cost of transporting goods by 30-40 percent For example, when compared with the Suez Canal, goods from Indian Mumbai to Moscow along the North-South corridor will arrive 20 days faster. In addition, the annual volume of freight on the new route is estimated at 20-30 million tons.

    Suresh Prabhu, Minister of Commerce and Industry of India, said earlier that his country would like to start using the corridor as soon as possible. Trial deliveries in a new way have already been made in 2014.

    Modest start , but fist step made. Mind that Russia has already started to help Venezuela too overcome crisis.

    Putin will take in the Kremlin a new leader of Cuba, is expected to sign a package of contracts

    Moscow. November 2. INTERFAX - Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet in the Kremlin on Friday with the chairman of the State Council and the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, who is on an official visit to Russia for the first time.
         
    "At the highest level, it is planned to discuss the state and prospects for further deepening the Russian-Cuban strategic partnership in various fields, as well as to exchange views on
     pressing international and regional problems," the presidential press service said earlier.
         
    The Kremlin’s press service does not provide other details of the summit’s agenda. At the same time, the press secretary of the head of state, Dmitry Peskov, said that the theme of the Russian-Cuban military-technical cooperation would be "actively on the agenda" of the meeting of the two leaders. However, he refrained from commenting in connection with reports that Russia could provide Cuba with a loan in the amount of about $ 50 million for the purchase of Russian weapons. "I can not provide more detailed information, but the subject of the PTS will be on the agenda," said D. Peskov.  On October 26, the Kommersant newspaper reported that Russia would provide Cuba with a state loan in the amount of more than $ 50 million for the purchase of Russian weapons. “This amount will go exclusively to the PTS. In addition to this agreement, a number of general economic documents and agreements under the Ministry of Finance will be signed, but other funds will be used for them,” a source familiar with the negotiations told Kommersant.
         
    This week in Havana, a meeting of the Russian-Cuban intergovernmental commission on trade, economic and scientific and technical cooperation, chaired by vice-premier Yuri Borisov, was held from the Russian side. The total amount of contracts signed following the visit of Y. Borisov to Cuba exceeded $ 260 million. "This is the modernization of three power units — about $ 100 million; this is the second stage of modernization of the metallurgical plant - about $ 60 million; serious contracts, "the deputy prime minister told reporters in Havana.

    At the same time, Y. Borisov added that "we will put points on the" i "during the visit (head of Cuba to Russia - IF)," since the Cubans "do not want to come to Russia empty-handed." According to him, the Cuban side confirmed its interest in major infrastructure contracts, in particular, the planned modernization of Cuba's railways. “This is an important and demanded project for them,” said Y. Borisov.   M.Dias-Kanel Bermudez became the head of Cuba in April 2018, previously he served as the first deputy chairman of the State Council of Cuba.
          On November 2, the speakers of both houses of the Russian parliament will also meet with the new head of Cuba.

    A pro American Empire ,Pro zionism candidate Jair Bolsonaro's is the favorite to win..
    Is not yet the president and is already have started to fire shots against China ,and Venezuela and Russia ..
    already is speaking of a revision of BRICS.. questioning its future. Is a US establishment follower.

    It will be funny and very embarrassing for Putin , if he takes brazil away from BRICS ... A major humiliation indeed will be for Putin and his mediocre world leadership.. and world influence.. he have been so wrong in his strategy to counter the west and United States is consolidating its influence in Latin America like never before.. And people
    need to be thankful to the incompetent Putin for this... Russia could win every year a Sochi olympics and win all
    the world cups and this will not make Russia ,influential nation in the west. neither in US , or Canada or Latin America. Russia needs a real leader ,that focus surpassing American leadership in Innovative Business
    and in space exploration.. because only by leading in the world ..not in bananas farming.. but in a high quality
    advance Business  is how Russia will earn the Respect they demand for Russia ,that Putin and lavrov so much complain the west don't give them. They see Russia and Putin extreme weakness vs America, and they move to side ,of the protection of the American system.    Russia have a really bad problem in Influence and leadership in the world and Putin outdated policies and outdated way of development of Russia is the source of this.

    BRICS is effectively dead before it even began.. not even CHINA believe on it anymore ,and they created alternatives Banks operations that competes with BRICS.... SOuthAfrica is now lead by a anti-White racist moron..
    and Brazil will likely leave it  or will stay to sabotage it from the inside.. Hopefully he leave BRICS ,so that will open the eyes to all the Putin's worshipers,, in this forum ,about "how smart" he is.. Rolling Eyes

    There is no chance for Russia to survive with Putin in power if US continues its economic pressure and continue
    creating conflits to force Russia to interfere.. Is not the Central bank of Russia the problem Russia face.. but Putin
    obsolete policies for Russia.. WHat Putin did by creating BRICS.. will be similar as to Building a brand new shinny
    Auditorium ,without first having the Artists or the Musicians that will play there and doing nothing to recruit any.
    Russia will NEVER , attract any nation in the west towards Russia orbit Until FIRST Putin ,defeat American influence in the world , Competes.. and Outmatch US top popular business. Putin Needs to show the world ,that they don't need to follow American business ,that Russia and China system have everything they will want.. but the only
    way Russia can show.. is by investing in Russia education system heavily , promoting people to study Science an Engineers ,promoting the creation of innovative business,and not waste Russia budget in meaningless things like Sports , like victory parades or worshiping the glorious past victories or focusing too much in infrastructure while at same time ignoring people development.. The Present is more important than the past. because is what will change the future.

    You have RUssia investing is so pretty buildings for BRICS.. but this is superficial all. BRICS have no chance
    to ever take off.. as a viable alternative to anything. Russia focus in BRICS This will be equivalent as Ukraine building a space station for travel to the moon. without Rockets ,Without having a space program ,without having scientist.. and doing no investment to create scientist that could do the job No .  So is unfortunate how much opportunities Russia lose , by Putin short sight policies..  Things will be far better for Russia if it had a Leader with Vision and did not allowed the west to dominate so much with their business.

    Putin is to Blame because in elections in Brasil they dont choose the candidate That you think Putin want?!?!?
    If  i Said what i think about your behavior in This forum i would BE banned.
    Think before write something.
    #BLAMERUSSIA


    I don't care what you think.. to be honest.  and like many others , you are wrong too..
    Nations and its leaders.. are not statues.. they can INFLUENCE OTHER NATIONS..  Why is that Americans
    always influence nations near Russia close to its Orbit ? Why is so easy for Americans to influence any nation more than Russia? Because Americans have Leadership.. and Russia have none.. thats why..  

    Putin's policies have all been ,focused in just turning Russia into a Saudi Arabia of Asia ,and create a major monopoly in energy. .This IS putin Major strategy to "counter Americans".. to influence Europe with cheap
    gas discounts.. Neutral   Putin develop Russia ,mostly as if it was a bit better than a third world country.. like Qatar for example.. that have many shinny malls and streets.. and infrastructure.. but still is an obsolete nation in terms of Leadership.. it does not lead in anything.. it only follows.. Putin focuse its economy in creating a monopoly in Energy , in breaking wheat and bananas farming records..,mining ,and selling weapons.. This is the same strategy that third world nations in AFrica do.. Mining ..check.. Energy.. check.. Football.. Check.. This is a LAZY development of Russia.. an economy that take next to zero Risk , in the way its develops its economy..

    Because Russia FOLLOWS an unfair and hostile system , that Americans controls.. Then any sane President ,
    will understand as soon come to power in 2000.. that Russia will have no chance to develop fully their country..
    as long as depend on American System. US banks , US Internet.. US high Technology and will never Russia have a chance to outmatch their enemies either if the Americans influence Russian citizens with their modern Culture..
    Putin wants to continue promoting the good old past.. the good old traditions ,"healthy food" ,"healthy sports" .
    he is an very outdated President ,not connected to the time he live and his biggest Crime is not understanding how Americans can influence NATION away of Russia orbit. Putin not even behave like a leader , by praising Americans
    as the only Super Power.. so how he is expect the west.. Europe ,to Abandon the American Orbit ,if Putin
    shows to be an insecure man ,with an  outdated view of the world.  In Russia the Duman pairliament wanted to
    censor halloween day in schools ,because it does not promote orthodox values..  Laughing

    Americans in the other not only dominates ,with their Highly innovative Business ,that many of them have
    ZERO competition.. but also they show much bigger ambitions in space too , and they influence too the world
    with their culture.. movies ,music ,their entertainment.. their social media , youtube ,etc etc etc.. So Putin...
    is too blame ,because he is the one responsible to guide Russian business ,to influence in which direction the economy will move , for creating conditions for promoting Leading ,future looking Modern Innovative Business , that will lead the world and could attract the west into Russia orbit..  But Putin believe that by just dropping the use of Dollar , this will automatically makes the west to find more attractive Business with Russia ,than Business
    with United states.  Rolling Eyes

    So Russia is today ,the way it is.. because Putin developed it that way..Highly Dependent on the American system.
    highly dependent in American technology.. It was not until 2014 ,that the Ukraine conflict began.. that he began to finance more heavily to Promote Russia IT industry.. and Baikal Processors.. why he didn't do this in 2000.. why wait 15 years!!! ???? and to make things worse ,he cut in half the funding of its space program.. that was the ONLY
    thing Russia was doing ,that was drawing the attention of the west towards Russia.. lol1

    So is INSANITY what Putin did.. waste hundred of $$bILLIONS of dollars.. more than $300 billions in celebrating
    totally meaningless sports events and super trains to china..that in no way will influence Europe to abandon NATO , money he could have used instead to promote a major Space Exploration program (to influence the world away from US orbit) , and use it compete with Americans most influential and modern innovative business.. that is to transform Russia into a REAL INDEPENDENT nation.. Sports promotes good relations ..says Putin.. so where are the Good relations ?  Sochi passed.. World Cup 2018.. passed.. So where are the good relations ?  Putin lack of vision ,and lack of ambitions ,and lack of competition to American leadership , is his biggest problem.. is the source of all Problems Russia face. This is because EVERY NATION can be influenced..  leadership , Innovation , showing that your country have a better. He even reduced the funding on its military...for social aid..   In times Russia is facing the possibility of war..  Laughing

    Russia needs nukes ,for the failure of Putin in neutralizing the influence of US over Europe.. and the world.
    I don't see Russia ever to have a chance to be respected Ever .as long Putin is in power.. You need a real Leader
    that understand how to fight back the west with better Business. and not speaking about gas discounts.  Rolling Eyes

    Russia is a gas station with nukes.. this is the image Russia project to the west.
    You can buy technology in the west from China.. CHina even have a competition for Amazon.. but where is Russia Business competition to American business in the west for sale anywhere ? probably a barril of crude oil at discount.  lol1



     But if Russia was as influential nation..as JAPAN business are. Leaders in Automobile industry ,leaders in technology ,leaders in entertainment ,very modern and advanced nation ,then we will not be today in this cold war/hot war scenario. That is influential as Japan ,but without their debt...then  Russia will have the respect it wants from the west ,if they were leading at least in Space. with very ambitious program ,to LEAD ,not to be second or third place.... then we will not be in this Cold war/hot war today and US will show more respect for Russia and will value a lot ,closer cooperation with Russian business. But Putin have a totally outdated view of the world he lives and of Russia..and this in the end cause , Russia to almost without  allies in the world.. other than rejected nations. While US get most of the world on its side..  The 5th column Russia have , can be also influenced.. everyone can be.. but Putin can't expect any Respect from the west..as long he shows Weakness ,insecurity and don't transform Russia into a REAL Independent Modern Nation , that leads the world into the Future. Reducing the use of dollar ,another Fail strategy of Putin is not going to stop US.. Only Leadership can stop
    US.. Only Russia innovative Development and leadership can stop the western system..and NATO.. only when Russian Business outmatch American ones.. only then.. we will see a huge difference and nations start to switch alliances and become closer to Russia. So i stand by what i said 100%. Putin IS to blame..more than anyone he is to blame.  He have failed to influence the west ,to stay away from NATO. All he do is build powerful nukes ,to scare nations to not join US orbit. In  the hypersonic conference.. Putin told ,you don't not listened ,but now you will..
    well guess what? the west still don't listen.. Putin's Nukes and Hypersonic missiles have FAILED to stop NATO reduce the militarization of Russian borders.. they now increasing the hostilities. abandoning Missile treaties.
    and will threaten Russia directly. In what way Sochi and World Cup 2018 ,helped Russia promote good relations?  Laughing  The world is really unfair place . United states is hijacked by very Evil and corrupt people.. and Russia is hijacked by very Weak Outdated leadership ,that don't have a clue of how to effectively destroy the American
    system. and how can you destroy the US system? With Business leadership .that outmatch the Americans ones.. thats how. Not in world records ,in eating cheeseburgers.. but in Innovative and advanced business that the entire world will praise. Im convinced that Putin is trying to influence US with Politeness and and compliments.. When Obama fired 100 Russian diplomats.. Putin response was to invite American embassy to christmans party. Laughing
    SO Americans slap Putin in the face and like a good christian he turns the other cheek.. No he is totally
    outdated for that job. he will never influence the west by being Soft , or weak.. it is Putin Weakness ,Putin's insecurity the only reason why NATO can safely bomb Syria ,and can safely deploy missiles armed with nukes at Russian borders.. because they know Putin will do nothing. But if Russia had a strong leader ,the west will not dare to provoke Russia into a fight .,knowing Russia will respond. and neither will dare to deploy missiles anywhere near Russia knowing Russia will destroy them... And if Russia had a really Smart President. it will have known long time ago ,How important is for Russia to defeat most popular Business US use as a weapon of influence ,into the American system. and how important is for Russia to be 100% Independent of west. True Independence and Leadership ,is the only way for Russia ,to become a respected nation in the world.
