The need to increase the level of provision of vegetables in the Far East was announced by Vladimir Putin. The President said that the federal authorities and the subjects of the Far Eastern Federal District are developing regional programs for the development of greenhouse farming, vegetable growing and potato growing.

At a meeting on the situation in agriculture and the food industry, Putin said that the railway subsidy program had been expanded for the Far East. Now in the Far Eastern Federal District they will be able to deliver not only grain from Siberia, but also vegetables and mineral fertilizers from the Siberian and Ural districts. Support will also be given to container transportation, including by rail, so the president asked Russian Railways and Russian meat and vegetable producers to prepare solutions for the efficient transportation of these goods from central Russia and Siberia to the Far East.

The President noted that the pandemic showed the dependence of the Far East on Chinese vegetables. Cucumbers and tomatoes in the Far Eastern Federal District sharply increased in priceafter deliveries from China ceased. For this reason, he asked to support domestic transportation and to engage in the development of greenhouse vegetable growing in the Far East.

Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister - Presidential Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev instructed to develop food security program in the Far East. In February, he noted that the heads of the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District should draw conclusions from the current situation, he cited the example of the Sakhalin region, where the growth of prices for vegetables did not occur, since the region has greenhouses.
