Russia asked Kazakhstan for grain, this was confirmed by Viktor Olhovy from Moscow's mayor office and by the Kazakh Agriculture Ministry. Moscow officially asked for 100,000-300,000 tonnes of grain. However, at the same time, the Russian authorities noted that the price is the main factor deciding on purchase. It means that they will purchase Kazakh grain if it is cheaper than in other offerings. To remind you, we have earlier reported that Russian traders were calling to Kazakhstan and asked for grain. Still, at the official level, Russia did not ask for supplies. To remind you, Russian PM Vladimir Putin introduced ban on grain exports several weeks ago. Russia has suffered hardly form drought and fire in past few weeks.
