China has become the largest buyer of Russian meat, overtaking Ukraine by this indicator. The Celestial Empire buys about half of all products exported by Russia. Mainland China accounted for 45% of supplies, excluding Hong Kong.
In total, in the first half of 2020 Russia increased the supply of meat and by-products to different countries 2.2 times more than in the same period last year. The total revenue amounted to $336 million. According to experts, the increase in exports was due to supplies of poultry meat.
