Grain unit problems:

Droughts, the death of winter crops, and a shortage of migrant workers for seasonal field work have hit Russian farmers’ crops. However,at the end of 2021, Russia harvested 120.7 million tons of grain – 9.6% more than in 2020, according to statistics from Rosstat.

The grain harvest was at a three-year low and fell short of the previous year’s result by almost 15 million tons.

As the wheat harvest decreased by 12%, or 10 million tons, to 75.9 million tons, while the Ministry of Agriculture predicted 81 million tons before the start of the season.

However, the barley harvest fell by 14%, to 18 million tons. Only corn was harvested 6% more than a year earlier – 14.6 million tons.

“The decrease in the volume of grains was due to the death of winter crops due to the drought in many regions of the country.”

The U.S. Agriculture Department had forecast a harvest of 85 million tons of wheat in Russia, but lowered the estimate sharply to 72.5 million tons in August, after adverse weather conditions hit major producing regions such as Tatarstan, Bashkortostan and Orenburg. Yields of harvested wheat fell by 24% year-on-year in the Central Federal District and by 45% in the Volga Federal District.

Supply shortages, combined with increased demand and record purchases by China for its state food reserve, have pushed up the average price of wheat on world markets by 31 percent over the year, according to FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) estimates.

As the FAO’s composite food price index, which takes into account the prices of 95 staple foods, added 23% last year and rewrote a 10-year high.

Not a very good harvest” promises Russia to repeat the situation of a sharp rise in food prices in 2022, warned the director of the monetary policy department of the Central Bank of Russia Kirill Tremasov. Last year, according to Rosstat, food inflation was the highest in 6 years (10.6%).

Terrorist Activities:

It is because of inflation in the Russian Federation in the occupied territories of Ukraine there is a global export of grain from Ukrainian lands and agrarians.

At gunpoint, landowners are forced to give away their crops, which subsequently leave the Ukrainian border, so the Russian authorities are trying to cover at least some of their food inflation.

Can’t such actions be called terrorist? If the actions of the RF resemble those of the Nazi regime in 1933-1945.
