    • restoration of soil fertility of agricultural lands in the constituent entities of the Russian Federation within the far Eastern Federal district affected by flooding, flooding and waterlogged soils (state support available until January 1, 2017);
    • the production of amino acids for animal feed (state support available until January 1, 2017);
    • development of the sub-sectors of crop production in the Republic of Crimea (state support available until January 1, 2017);
    • development of the sub-sectors of crop production in Sevastopol (state support available until January 1, 2017);

 

  • in the area of animal husbandry:
    • prevention of introduction and spread of African swine fever;
    • restoration of the production of pork products in the Russian regions affected by the occurrence of African swine fever (state support available until January 1, 2017);
    • development of the sub-sectors of livestock in the Republic of Crimea (state support available until January 1, 2017);
    • development of the sub-sectors of livestock in Sevastopol (state support available until January 1, 2017);

 

  • in the area of the beef cattle industry:

UN Comtrade data for 2009 for the relevant exporters to Russia has been used for the calculation of the affected trading partners.

The GTA includes state guarantees and other financial incentives that are likely to affect the restructuring and performance of firms facing international competition, whether from imports, in export markets, and from foreign subsidiaries.
