The Russian Minister of Agriculture said that his country has managed to save $ 4 billion by encouraging domestic production in spite of imports. This measure, which was taken following the embargo on the country since 2014, has allowed Russia to boost domestic production of meat, dairy products, fruit and vegetables. For example, the production of greenhouse vegetables reaches around 800,000 tons and could reach 1.8 million tons in the next 3 to 4 years.
