    Russia to export agricultural products to ‘friendly countries’ only, 16.06.2022.

    Vital food supplies will be provided to the nations that need it most, the Ministry of Agriculture says.

    Russian Minister for Agriculture Dmitry Patrushev said on Thursday that the country’s grain harvest could reach 130 million tons this year, which would be enough to cover both domestic needs and ensure export potential.

    Speaking on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), he pointed to numerous challenges including broken supply chains and difficulties with financial calculations.

    Patrushev said Russia has to overcome these obstacles in order to provide food to the countries that need it most. “Our [agricultural] products will be on foreign markets, but only in those countries that are friendly to us, that do not create hurdles and difficulties for us,” he told reporters.

    Russia is expecting a bumper grain crop this year, including a record wheat harvest, President Vladimir Putin said last month. He added that a number of countries are facing the threat of famine, stressing that the blame for this situation lies entirely with “the Western elites.”

    The grain crisis is being felt across the globe as wheat prices have surged to record highs over the past two months. The global food market, already affected by weather and the Covid pandemic, was dealt another blow due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict and Western sanctions on Moscow. This has sparked fears of global food insecurity and hunger.

    Russia demands rubles for grain exports, 01.07.2022.

    Moscow has expanded the list of commodities that must be paid for in Russian currency.

    The Russian government has added grain, sunflower oil and extracted meal to the list of exports that must be paid for in rubles. A resolution giving effect to the decision was adopted on Friday and published on the official portal of legal information.

    It also provides for a one-year extension of duties to be paid in the national currency in respect of exported sunflower oil and sunflower meal until August 31, 2023.

    As part of the new payment mechanism, the base price for calculating the export duty on wheat will be 15,000 rubles (over $267) per ton.

    Russia is the world’s largest wheat exporter and a major supplier of sunflower seeds. Russian Minister for Agriculture Dmitry Patrushev said this month that the country would export agricultural products to “friendly countries” only.

    According to the minister, Russia’s grain harvest could reach 130 million tons this year, which would be enough to cover both domestic needs and ensure export potential.

    Wheat prices fell in Russia, 14.07.2022.

    Against the backdrop of a new harvest, Russia lowered prices for wheat exports. This was announced by the head of the Union of Grain Exporters Eduard Zernin, TASS writes .

    Thus, the cost of wheat with a protein content of 12.5% ​​in the ports of Novorossiysk fell by $10 to $360 per ton over the week. Wheat with a protein content of 11.5% today costs $345 per ton.

    Thé expert drew attention to the fact that grain prices have been falling since the beginning of June. He also noted that the quadripartite meeting on the "grain corridor" held the day before in Istanbul with the participation of delegations from Russia, Turkey, Ukraine and UN representatives had no effect on the price of wheat.

    It is expected that the grain harvest in Russia in 2022 will be 130 million tons, of which 87 million tons will be wheat, follows from the forecasts of the Ministry of Agriculture. Already today, about 10 million tons of grain have been threshed.

    Earlier it became known that with a number of countries, payments for grain would be converted into roubles.

    Thé Russian commodity index for wheat will appear by September, by Tatyana Karabut for Rossiskaya Gazeta. 14.07.2022

    Moscow Exchange expects to launch futures contracts for wheat by September. Also before the end of the year there will be futures contracts for sunflower oil and meal, sugar and soybeans. This will create a transparent pricing system for these products, and market participants will be able to minimize their financial risks using this exchange instrument.

    Initially, the settlement futures for wheat were planned to be launched on July 19. But we decided that it would be right to wait until the end of the holiday season, and during this time to more thoroughly prepare the product itself and the market for it, Evgeny Burtsev, head of the derivatives market department of the exchange, said at the Moscow Exchange webinar.

    He noted that there are several reasons for creating a futures contract index of Russian wheat. First, Russia is the largest supplier of wheat to foreign markets, and the supply of our grain seriously affects the world food market. Secondly, the government in the current conditions is ready to create a transparent pricing system in the domestic market, and exchange trading is a source of fair prices. Now at the level of the Ministry of Finance, a bill is being discussed that approximately 25% of all manufactured goods should be sold through exchange trading. And thirdly, now many price agencies have left Russia. Real-time prices for international benchmarks for wheat, corn, sunflower are not visible. Russian individuals and legal entities cannot trade or invest in agricultural products and thus cannot hedge their price risks.

    "This will be our domestic index, and we will stop using indices of foreign exchanges, such as the Chicago Mercantile Exchange or the International Futures Market of France. That is, it is quite promising, it is already working quite successfully, and many of the client base use this exchange," the CEO said "United Grain Company" (OZK) Dmitry Sergeev at a recent meeting with President Vladimir Putin.

    The lot of the contract will be 1 ton (approximately 15 thousand rubles). Such a small volume will make this tool for individuals. Representatives of friendly countries will also have access to the tool, Burtsev specified.

    In 2021, OZK initiated electronic auctions at the National Commodity Exchange (NTB). In less than a year, the turnover amounted to 15.6 billion rubles, which proved their effectiveness, Sergeyev believes. In May, the NTB started calculating the wheat price index. In early July, the Bank of Russia approved the exchange index for wheat. According to the Central Bank, for market participants, the index is a benchmark that they can use to solve business problems and launch price risk hedging tools. Also, the index can be used in the regulation of commodity markets.

    Excellent news. Having some clown imperial outfit set the price is absurd. Russia should set the price and the market can
    adjust it. The skewed world order where some collection of colonialist powers (dating back centuries) govern the global economy
    must be ended. The economic crisis in the west demonstrates just how important Russia is for the global economy but western
    dominated analysis was fobbing it off as a 2% nothing burger for global GDP. I think the claim that it is 6% if its resource exports are
    taken into account (through value added production and services depending on them) is BS as well. Russia is over 10% of the real
    world GDP. Its real economy is not smaller than Germany and Japan. Russia is in the top three. India is hovering around 3 and 4
    based on its massive population. In the future it will be in the top three because Russia's population is limited. Latin America has
    a chance to advance as well if it throws of the yanqui yoke.

    Russia is not going to be free from the west if its products are sold through markets in Chicago or France... on the oil thread it mentioned that the Chicago markets the sellers were stealing the discounts meant for Indian companies buying Russian oil which is why the west is so rich being given such power over transactions they really actually have nothing to do with.

    Cutting out the middlemen of the west will make international trade cheaper for the traders and cut off an income stream for people in the west who really don't actually do anything.

    I have mentioned before that here in New Zealand I can't buy Russian ammo any more because the German company that bought the Russian ammo to sell to New Zealand companies couldn't buy Russian products any more because of EU sanctions.

    The claim was that the Russians don't want to deal with tiny orders that New Zealand companies would make so they sell in bulk to big German intermediaries who split the orders up and distribute to countries around the world... making money for themselves of course, and also controlling who gets what.

    They are not sold through Chicago or France. This is not how this works. Prices in mercantile exchanges are used as reference points. Due to sanctions, probably hedging instruments are not available, as they are based on Chicago and France pricing.

    I read an article in an American biased source that mentioned the Indians were buying Russian oil through brokers in Chicago and that the Indian customers weren't receiving the discounts the Russians were giving because the brokers were stealing it.

    Makes sense to me because if you buy something on Ebay you have to pay Ebay a percentage... that is how they make money.

    How do these big exchanges make money otherwise?

    In case of grains, very little Russian grain will be sold through Chicago market. Big Russian buyers and trading houses will use hedging instruments( futures) traded on CME to lower risks, as such transactions take time. Also, buyers of Russian grain will do same.
    As for oil, fact that brokers are in Chicago doesn't matter much. Price will be based on price of said Russian blend ( in case of India, usually Sokol blend). Due to sanctions and not optimal geography, costs of such transaction is much higher than before ( wider spread between hedging instruments, higher insurance and transportation costs, etc).
    In case they were buying Ural blend said costs are even higher, as Ural blend was mostly geared toward European markets. Also, "risk premium" of handling Russian crude is in the price now. From what I've seen, Indians are still getting cheaper crude.

    So there is already Propaganda being peddled in NATzO media making all sorts of negative claims about the Russian replacement for Mcdonalds. Paid propagandists are saying that bread served in the fast-food have moulds on them and some ingredients are expired. I would like Russian media to make an in-depth investigation of how Macdonalds and other NATzO fast-food chains also have moulds, expired ingredients, and harmful chemicals mixed in their food.

    Also, Suppliers of French fries are refusing deliveries to Russia, Who is weaponizing food now? This NATzO Hypocrysy needs to be called out and magnified in all Russian press.

    This makes me wonder, I am sure that Russia has more than enough arable territory to grow potatoes (and other essential agricultural products), but how is Russia still facing shortages as a result of poor harvest?



    Producers of fries refusing to supply to Russia, McDonald's successor says

    MOSCOW, July 15 (Reuters) - The head of the company now running the former McDonald's Corp chain of restaurants in Russia told RBC TV that producers of French fries are refusing to supply to the country and warned that attempts to increase domestic processing are fraught with difficulties.

    McDonald's quit Russia after a Western backlash against Moscow's military campaign in Ukraine, which included a barrage of economic sanctions, and sold all the restaurants it owned to a local licensee in May.

    News about fries are bullshit. Probably problem of severed supply chains.But, there is a problem with declining production of potatoes for several reasons. First is that farmers decided to go with more profitable crops ( wheat, corn, sunflower, etc). Second, a lot of potatoes is imported from Belarus that has very cheap production base.

    There's an actual problem for agriculture in Russia, which is a seed production for specific crops. This is where export substitution program need to be implemented. It goes for potatoes, sugarbeet and some other crops in lesser degree

    McDs here in New Zealand makes a point of saying the food used to make their products is locally grown... perhaps they were using McDs in Russia to sell western food sources and make more profit to extract from Russia?

    Either way it is up to the new owners to sort out new supply chains that preferably use local resources and products and sort that shit out.

    Otherwise the story is that if you don't do as you are told western companies will screw you every way they can... don't do business with the bastards in the first place.

    And BTW Reuters is a western intel front company that is not interested in news or the truth... would not waste my time with those cowardly losers... the way they sold out and suck up to the western rich and powerful is why the west is so fucked up.

    Used to be corruption was a story to be exposed and eliminated... these days it is about finding what is on the menu of the gravy train and hooking up a trough so you can wolf down as much as you can while it is coming your way...

    14.07.2022:
    The harvesting campaign in Russia is gaining momentum. The pace of seasonal field work and yields for a number of crops significantly exceed last year's figures.

    To date, farmers have collected 19.9 million tons of grain. Grain and leguminous crops were threshed from an area of 4.9 million hectares, which is 14% more than the level of 2021.

    Including wheat harvested from 3.7 million hectares, harvested 15.5 million tons (+46.2% to the level of 2021). 3.5 million tons of barley were also harvested (+29.6%).

    Rapeseed production is 482.4 thousand tons, against 91.5 thousand tons a year earlier. In agricultural enterprises and peasant (farm) farms, 174.6 thousand tons of potatoes have been accumulated, and 170 thousand tons of open-ground vegetables have been harvested.

    The propaganda about mould on bread from the replacement McD is hilarious. McD "bread" does not grow mould. Stop and think
    about that. A "food" that cannot be handled by a primal rot agent. So even if the Russian bread actually was mouldy, I would
    rather eat it than the McD precious western superiority "bread".

    Actually there was no fecking mould on the Russian bread. If this was the state of the Russian restaurant business then you would
    hear about it all the time. But these western media spasms tell you more about the state of the west that it needs to engage in
    such spasms.

    I'm assuming Burger King is a lot better in Serbia because over here it's gone to crap.

    As for the Reuters article, it's definitely a cheap hit piece thay doesn't make sense. I didn't bother reading it but I'm assuming there isn't really any source or anything to backup the claims?

    It is the same here... McDonalds meat is a bit bland and tasteless and the onions are watery and have no flavour.

    In comparison the Burger King meat tastes much better and you get a good flavour from the onions too...

    Home made is better though.

    It is the same here... McDonalds meat is a bit bland and tasteless and the onions are watery and have no flavour.

    In comparison the Burger King meat tastes much better and you get a good flavour from the onions too...

    Home made is better though.

    You guys need Harvey's or A&W's Very Happy Those other two are total crap...
