The global agricultural market, as well as its stability and wellbeing have a direct impact on the stability and wellbeing of the people in all countries. They also have a direct impact on national security. The year 2020 has changed all the relations in all spheres of our life. Starting from 2020, the global food market has been going through the time of troubles.  We need to learn how to survive in this new reality. Thank goodness, Russian agriculture has survived all the challenges, though all the global logistics chains have changed, much like business environment. Russian agriculture and processing and food industries have survived the pandemic. We did not suffer from food shortages.  Besides, our export has grown up to USD 30.5 billion. This is a very solid figure

Creating a Circular Economy in Russia: How Will the Environmental Agenda Impact Production and Consumption?
Decree 474 ‘On the National Goals [for Russia’s Development until 2030]’ states that, by 2030, we must sort 100% of waste, halve the amount of so-called tailings, and reduce disposal at landfills. For this purpose, we need a new industry for working with this waste and rules for putting waste from secondary material resources back into circulation. This won’t work without regulation and without binding instructions from the government. […] It won’t go anywhere without digitalization. […] There should be clear traceability from the source of garbage to its disposal, utilization, and sorting
