Rusagro to Post Historical Net Income, Boosted by Russia's Import Ban

Combine harvesters work on a wheat field of the Solgonskoye farming company in the village of Solgon, southwest from Krasnoyarsk, Russia.

Russian farming conglomerate Rusagro said on Thursday its third-quarter net profit jumped to 6.6 billion rubles ($138 million) from 2.2 billion rubles a year ago, boosted by Russia's ban on Western meat imports.

The company, listed in London as Ros Agro and controlled by senator Vadim Moshkovich's family, plans to post the highest annual net income in its history, Maxim Basov, its chief executive, said in a statement.

Its third-quarter sales jumped 68 percent, year-on-year, to 14.7 billion rubles.

… 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.
