Putin says United Russia will use only domestic produce

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, leader of the pro-Kremlin United Russia party, said on Friday that the party would drink only Russian-made wine and tea.

“Certainly United Russia will eat only homegrown produce,” said Putin at an regional party conference in Volgograd when asked by a member from the tea- and wine-growing center of Krasnodar about support for domestic tea and wine producers.

Putin added that the Russian authorities already provide a variety of state support for domestic producers.
