In 2022, the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation is ready to reduce the planned subsidies for the agro-industrial complex in regions that show low results in bringing funds to farmers. This was announced on May 20 by the deputy head of the Ministry of Agriculture Elena Fastova at a meeting with the regional governing bodies of the agro-industrial complex.
The size of incentive and compensating subsidies for the production of crop and livestock products can be reduced by 30%. This will affect the regions, which by July 1, 2021 will show low cash execution to bring support measures to manufacturers, writes Kommersant.
According to the Ministry of Agriculture, as of mid-May this year, out of 132 billion rubles. only 19% reached the agrarians, and in a number of regions - less than 10% (including Rostov, Belgorod, Tver, Kurgan regions, Krasnodar and Primorsky Territories, Dagestan and Ingushetia).
Reducing subsidies is seen as a possible measure to improve the financial discipline of the regions. The department explained that the key goal is to ensure prompt delivery of funds to manufacturers and stimulate the development of promising projects.
