Putin wants Russia to become the biggest exporter of non-GMO food

GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism and is defined as “an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques.” The technique used to create GMOs is called recombinant DNA.

DNA molecules from different organisms are combined to create one molecule of DNA, and are then transferred to an organism, causing its genetic makeup to change. GMOs have been linked to serious health conditions, including negative reproductive system effects, food allergies, and possibly even cancer.

The president of Russia, Vladamir Putin wants Russia to become the biggest exporter of non-GMO food. He stated recently that his goal is to make Russia the biggest source of ecologically clean and high quality organic food. Putin’s goal is also to make the country completely self-sufficient when it comes to food by the year 2020.

Putin stated the following when addressing the Russian Parliament recently:

“We are not only able to feed ourselves taking into account our lands, water resources – Russia is able to become the largest world supplier of healthy, ecologically clean and high-quality food which the Western producers have long lost, especially given the fact that demand for such products in the world market is steadily growing.”

According to the President, Russia is no longer an importer but an exporter of food:

“Ten years ago, we imported almost half of the food from abroad, and were dependent on imports. Now Russia is among the exporters. Last year, Russian exports of agricultural products amounted to almost $20 billion – a quarter more than the revenue from the sale of arms, or one-third the revenue coming from gas exports,” he said.
