Russia exported four times more pork to Kazakhstan
The head of the Rosselkhoznadzor, Sergei Dankvert, believes that Russia has everything to develop meat exports to the CIS countries. The export potential of these markets is underestimated. He announced this on the sidelines of the international economic forum, which ended recently in St. Petersburg.

During this period, Russia supplied pork to the following countries: Belarus (25 thousand tons; more than double growth), Kazakhstan (4.5 thousand tons; 4 times increase), Armenia (427 tons; 8 times increase) , Kyrgyzstan (290 thousand tons; an increase of 60%).
As for the export of beef, it increased by 4 thousand tons to 15.5 thousand tons. Also, supplies of poultry meat and domestic by-products increased to 159 thousand tons. This type of product is actively bought in China (62 thousand tons), Ukraine (14 thousand tons) and Saudi Arabia (15.5 thousand tons).
