KIEV, October 20 (RIA Novosti)
Ukraine may introduce wheat export quotas, the Unian news agency said on Saturday citing grain traders.
The country’s agriculture and food ministry said on Friday about 1.3 million tons of wheat was being exported each month, which was almost double on last year. So by November 15-20, Ukraine’s wheat export reserves (about 5-5.3 million tons) could be exhausted.
Grain traders were told “to exercise a cautious approach in concluding new contracts.”
The ministry earlier ruled out the introduction of grain export quotas in 2012-13.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
