"Federal allowance for milk will be cancelled, capex will be cancelled, the per-hectare will be cancelled, we won’t get any preferential loans, since all the money will be spent on maintenance of the old preferential loans," said Pavel Grudinin.
"Last year, 80% of preferential loans in Moscow region were received by processors, not by producers," said Grudinin.

He also added that "no veterinary certificate can guarantee the quality of milk".
