“Bashkortostan received 80 thousand tons of grain from the intervention fund without auction and at very low prices” – the Vice-Premier of the Government RB, the Minister of agriculture RB Ernst Isaev reported – “One month ago the prices for fodder grain were about 7,5 thousand rubles. Now our Republic receives same grain at 4,5 thousand rubles”.

Because of the grain delivery the threat of African swine fever penetration in the territory of Bashkiria arises.

“We undertake all necessary measures on the Republican level in order to avoid grain deliveries from the quarantine regions” – Ernst Isaev underscored.
