Production subsidy

On December 12, 2012, the Government of the Russian Federation approved with Resolution No. 1370 the rules for the calculation, allocation and disbursement of federal subsidies to provincial (Russian) milk producers for the reimbursement of expenses related to production and marketing of milk. The rules are part of the sub-programme 'Development of the livestock subsector, processing and marketing of livestock products' of the State Programme for Development of Agriculture in 2013-2020.

The budget for the federal milk subsidies has been approved on December 5, 2012, by the Federal Law FZ "On the federal budget for 2013 and the planning period 2014-2015". This means that the milk subsidies will remain in force for at least 36 months. The federal subsidies, planned to be allocated in 2013, amount to RUB 9.56 billion (USD 314.74 million). For 2014 and 2015, they amount to RUB 8.87 billion (USD 291.98 million) and RUB 9.29 billion (USD 305. 92 million), respectively.
The Resolution No 1370 entered into force on January 1, 2013.
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.
