High Ideals And Forward Thinking

Russia – A nation to look to for high ideals and forward thinking.

While other major players on the world stage are bogged down in grubby, costly and destructive, oil centered dramas, Russia is aiming to be self-sufficient in food by 2020.

“Ten years ago, we imported almost half of the food from abroad, and were dependent on imports. Now Russia is among the 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,” said President Putin.
