Russia aims to become world’s largest exporter of organic food.
U.S. Media Silent as Putin Declares Russia GMO-Free
Most of you know that Russian President Putin has Russia saying “not yet” to GMOs and asserting their national focus on establishing themselves as the world’s largest exporter of organic food, as well as providing their people with healthy non-GMO food.
This wasn’t just a spare of the moment decision either. It came about following years of analyzing the downside to using GMO foods and their overall effects on its consumers. Since there are no biotech industries that thrive there, Russia had no real dog in the fight, so to speak.
Part of Russia’s agricultural system includes small private rural “gardens” that provide produce to the country’s overall welfare. It is estimated that around 40 percent of all vegetable and fruit crops come from that sector alone

No worries, Decker. It’s a great pity (though not surprising) this wasn’t covered in the mainstream media.

I am quickly becoming a Putin fan.
I think he has good and bad points, gerard. I like to see him (along with China) standing up to US bullying. However I don’t like the way his government suppresses the environmental movement. China, in contrast, encourages the environmental movement – the central government sees it as a good way to counter local corruption.

GREAT LETS HOPE THE REST OF THE WORLD WILL FOLLOW
From everything I read, in most places people have to organize to get their governments to ban GMOs. I think Russia is an exception – they were forced into organic farming by economic sanctions. Cuba was in a similar situation in the 1990s when the Soviet Union collapsed and cut off their oil.
