In the first half of 2018 the Republic of Belarus sharply reduced the export of dairy products to the Russian Federation, according to the National Statistic Committee of Belarus (Belstat).
The main reason for the decline in exports was the decline in the supply of condensed milk and milk powder to Russia. At the same time, as it became known, the supply of products to Russia decreased by a third, which affected the finances. Thus, in terms of money the country didn’t get $85.6 million.
Despite the reduction in supplies, the Russian Federation continues to be the main market for Belarusian milk today. Almost all kinds of dairy products are delivered to Russia. At the same time, Belarus supplies milk to more than 20 countries. (UkrAgroConsult/Business World Magazine)
