Green - arable land, red - abandoned arable land. (to bring it into scale - total abandoned arable land in Russia is bigger than entire Germany, 39 mln hectares)

another version, with Central Asia included

Why the abandonment? And is said land reclaimable for agriculture?

 

 

during soviet era due to plan economy and to write up good reports, all sorts of place were ploughed up. some of it was useful, some not. my late father-of-law was tractor operator in collective farm and wife remebers still how she looked at dad working on some hillside and wondering when will the tractor tilt over and fell on dad. as soon as soviet order crashed, such fields-´´fields´´ were abandoned.

besides that every decent collective farm director had secret fields that were not counted officially, crops of which were added to regulars, hence being able to claim higher average yields etc.

Another box ticked on the list of what is dear to the Bureaucracy of Anything. This is zaibatsu-level thinking in various ways.

 

26% interest on the other hand is illustrative of what Russian banks may think of the reserve viability of their own currency in various ways.

That is basically why i always say "1984" got nothing to do with USSR\Russia:  people here are too inventive and too relaxed to follow regulations for that. Real totalitarism only possible in Western society :)

I give Putin credit for staying on topic and being prepared, better than quite a few politicians here. Is that correct that the banks are charging 26% on loans?

 

It was true for commercial loans until recently (as real producers were de-facto completing for money against financial\stock market "business"). This British gentleman asking the question is not so simple Johnny Appleseed as he is trying to look  - he is former  CEO of international coal company, owner of coal business in Russia etc. , so he know what questions to ask and what he wants, running huge farm business.  Now he (and others) were  heard and  preferential (state sponsored) loans for agriculture producers are available at ~5%

Can Russia grow enough food to feed itself?

 

Depends heavily on your definition of "feed itself" - i do not think we will ever be self-sufficient on tropical fruits, but we are now global No.1 grain exporter, and Gov is buying out grain to state funds to prevent prices falling and harming farmers...
