The government will carry out large-scale interventionist purchases of grain to the value of USD 160-190 million. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Agriculture Alexei Gordeev made this announcement yesterday in Volosovo in the Leningrad Region, while appearing before leaders of regional branches of the Russian Agricultural Movement. According to Gordeev, the question of stabilising prices on the grain market will be discussed at a meeting on August 29, which will be attended by representatives of the Finance Ministry, the Central Bank and the Russian Agricultural Bank.
