The reduced fuel prices for agricultural producers will be prolonged this year, the Chairman of the Government RF Vladimir Putin stated at the gathering “The work balance of the fuel-energy complex RF in 2010 and the aims in 2011”.
The Prime-Minister has underscored the discount has to be 10% of the price, valid on November 1, 2010, and it means the discount will be about 30% from today’s prices. In the absolute figures it means the support for Russian agrarians will be about 10 billion rubles.
This measure is called to support the agricultural complex of Russia, which has gone through the dry 2010 year. Vladimir Putin has underscored the Russian Government has to give the agrarians a chance to hold the spring field works normally, thereby laying the foundation for the future harvest, the press-service of the Government RF reports.
