    “Recently, we have been observing a situation with grain, with grain terminals, - VTB is actively buying them and building a grain monopolist, we will discuss this issue at the forum, - Alexander Goloviznin opens up the problem of future debates, - we will also consider the situation when coal tends to the East, but the Russian Railways tries to invite it again to the West. Maybe we’ll look at what is happening in the North with the NSR. If we talk about such additional topics, about what will be on top of the usual overview of industry trends, then we can also touch on the topic of mineral fertilizers, recall the long-suffering one Taman and the more successful another. ”
