Putin Says Russia Will Supply The World With Organic Food


In an address to Russian Parliament in early December, 2015, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia is capable of becoming food independent by 2020, noting that the county made almost $20 billion in revenue from food exports in 2014.


His stated goal: to supply the world with healthy, organic food.  



“We are not only able to feed ourselves taking into account our lands, water resources – Russia is able to become the largest world supplier of healthy, ecologically clean and high-quality food which the Western producers have long lost, especially given the fact that demand for such products in the world market is steadily growing,” he said.

Putin reiterated the value of exporting healthy food.  "Ten years ago, we imported almost half of the food from abroad, and were dependent on imports. 

Now Russia is among the main exporters. 

Last year, Russian exports of agricultural products amounted to almost $20 billion - a quarter more than the revenue from the sale of arms, or one-third the revenue coming from gas exports."

Of course, Putin's never done anything untrustworthy before...so surely he must be telling the truth.
