Agriculture Facility Started

STAVROPOL — State-owned Rosselkhozbank started the construction of an agro-industrial park worth about 40 billion rubles ($1.37 billion) in the Stavropol territory Sunday, Interfax reported.

The agro-industrial park will be built near the village of Ulyanovka in the Mineralniye Vody region on an area of 190 hectares.

Construction of the complex will be conducted in three phases. Investments in the first stage, planned for 2012-14, will amount to 15 billion rubles. The project will create a logistics zone with vegetable storage, cold storage, dry storage and a trading center. The second phase, through 2017, will involve the construction of a vegetable-processing plant; meat, margarine and canned food factories; and rapeseed processing. In the third phase, sales and service facilities for agricultural machinery and equipment for farmers' markets will be built by 2020.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
