Russian farmers not reaping benefits from Western produce embargo

A goat at a dairy farm in the village of Novoe Seltso, around 100 km from MoscowMilking a stubborn goat at her farm just outside Moscow, Larisa Sukhanova says she’s worried about the future of her milk business as a year-old embargo on Western foodstuffs fails to yield a promised bonanza for local farmers. While authorities present the embargo enacted in reprisal for Western sanctions over Ukraine as an opportunity to develop the country’s flagging farming sector, analysts say the crippling economic crisis roiling the country, and years of the state’s neglect of agriculture, have seen local producers struggle to make gains. “The government has been paying more attention to us farmers,” Sukhanova, 68, told AFP as she stroked one of her 120 white goats.
