Putin expects ‘record’ 150-million-tonne grain harvest in 2022 – Times of India

MOSCOW: Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday his country expected a record-high grain harvest in 2022 as Moscow blames Western sanctions over Ukraine for preventing its exports, especially to poor countries.
“The preliminary estimate (for 2022) already stands at 150 million tonnes, including around 100 million tonnes of wheat. This will be a record in the history of Russia,” Putin said in televised remarks.
