Zubkov Sees No Russia Grain Export Ban

Russia will not need to reintroduce a ban on grain exports this year, First Deputy Prime Minister Viktor Zubkob told Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Monday.

“It’s very likely that this year we won’t introduce any restrictions on the export of grain; as we planned and reported to you before, we hope to harvest 27 million tons,” Zubkov said.

Russia introduced a temporary grain export ban in 2010 following a heatwave and drought that wiped out about a third of the nation’s harvest.
