“Today’s performances and the changes in the agricultural sector, show that the result we have achieved is exceptionally unique, and allows for very good possibilities for the further development of Russian agriculture,” Putin continued. He also said that higher sales in the agricultural sector would stimulate the demand for agricultural machines. “I am certain that if the farmers’ incomes increase, demand [for machines] will increase. That will also support the construction of agricultural machines,” Putin concluded.
