If ever there were a war on for one’s allegiance about food philosophies, the U.S.’s apparent main political adversary, Russia, probably would win it hands down. Why? Well, Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is quoted as saying, “If the Americans like to eat GMO products, let them eat it then. We don’t need to do that; we have enough space and opportunities to produce organic food.” [CJF emphasis added]

Hear that Monsanto? Let’s see if one of your employees can get into the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia like with the U.S. FDA (Michael Taylor, FDA Deputy Commissioner of Foods) [1] and at the U.S. Supreme Court (Justice Clarence Thomas) [2].

Furthermore, Russia is on record as not importing any GMO products, so I guess any agricultural trade sanctions that the West may levy against Russia relative to the Ukraine incident may not affect them as some politicos may think, hope, or intend.

Back in September of 2012, NaturalNews published “Russia’s small-scale organic agriculture model may hold the key to feeding the world” wherein this was pointed out:

Thanks to government policies there that actually encourage autonomous family farming, rather than cater to the greed of chemical and biotechnology companies like they do here in the states, the vast majority of Russians are able and willing to grow their own food on privately-owned family plots known as “dachas.”
