"The departure of Cargill and Viterra leaves Russian grain reserves mainly in the hands of domestic and state-funded companies, which means that Russia will control most of the necessary revenues," the material says.

According to the agency, this situation pushes states to negotiate grain supplies without the help of international traders, as a result of which the food market becomes very important from the point of view of geopolitics.

Earlier it was reported that the grain trader Viterra plans to leave the Russian market.

Before that, there were reports that the American trader of agricultural products Cargil would stop exporting Russian grain.
