Russian agricultural producers should receive about six billion rubles for new investment projects in livestock and crop production, TASS reports citing Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
This was stated by Medvedev at a government meeting. According to him, 33 regions will receive funds. They will be aimed at compensating part of the costs of projects for the construction and modernization of cattle f arms, greenhouse complexes, breeding centers, vegetable and grain storages and processing enterprises. Several of these projects can be implemented before the end of the year, and some others - at the beginning of the next year.
