Russia Sees No Grain Imports Next Year: A bumper grain harvest in 1993 means Russia will not need to import grain next year, Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Zaveryukha told Russian television. Zaveryukha, who is responsible for agriculture, said the grain harvest will be between 115 million and 120 million metric tons and that this year's imports will be restricted to feed grain and oil seed meal under a humanitarian contract already signed with the United States. He said the government decided to reduce imports to encourage Russia's own producers.
