Russia export message mixed

Russia isn't planning to limit grain export from the country, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich told reporters Friday.

"No limiting measures for the agricultural market will be taken," Mr. Dvorkovich said. "This is pointless, aimless and does not change the market situation as it leads to additional growth of world [grain] prices," he said. "Government policy remains the same. Export will happen in a normal regime taking into consideration that the situation is developing predictably and there will be no major commotion," he added.

Earlier Friday Economy Minister Andrei Belousov said Russia may limit grain exports this autumn if domestic prices rise sharply.

"The question of shutting off the export of grain is one of the dynamics of the domestic price for grain. We are currently monitoring that trend. Given such trends, it's entirely possible that the government will decide to limit exports," Mr. Belousov was quoted as saying.
