At the same time, writes "Kommersant", the agency has already begun to assess the need for additional funding in the next few years - for example, in 2017-2018 years for the payment of grants to beginning farmers need more 10 billion rubles.

Presenting the national report on the implementation of 2015 year state program of development of agrarian and industrial complex to 2020 years, Agriculture Minister Alexander Tkachev said that the industry for the year showed a three percent increase, explaining that a large-scale state support - 2015 billion rubles were allocated in 222, the AIC. (15% to more than 2014-m). In 2016 year, as previously reported, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, the budget provides for support to agribusiness 215 billion rubles., But the government will seek funding for level as last year.

The main questions of the Ministry of Agriculture to increase funding are already known. Thus, the agency insists on increasing the support for short-term loans - to secure it at the level of 2015 years (. 836 billion rubles) Alexander Tkachev previously requested additional 30-40 billion rubles, but was prepared to accept and 23 billion rubles, already provided for in the.. anti-crisis plan of the White house (see.

According to him, the agency is developing a "road map" to support the production of milk.

In these circumstances, the head of the Ministry of Agriculture yesterday took care of informing the White House in advance of the ministry's requests for a more distant future. So, for the payment of grants for the creation of farms, 10 billion rubles are currently provided, while in the queue for their receipt, according to the Ministry of Agriculture, there are about 8 thousand people, and for its liquidation, the department will need another 10 billion rubles. "A fairly large amount, we understand this perfectly, but we see the desire and excitement of people to go to the agricultural business," the minister explained, expressing the hope that the possibility of allocating these funds will appear in 2017-2018.
