According to Ekaterina Zakharova, Russian dairy products are currently uncompetitive on the European market.
According to Ekaterina Zakharova, the average fat in milk in the EU in March 2019 was - 4.13%, the average protein - 3.41%. In Russia, according the estimates the Center the average fat is 3.65%, protein - 3.07%.
