Ever since the fall of communism, Russia’s capitalism has its own unique flavor and style. The way I look at it? Why not? I don’t care where my food comes from as long as long as it’s safe enough.
If Russia wants to do it, go for it. As long as it passes whatever minimal standards my country (USA) sets for safety, I’m fine with it. I tried growing my own food. Pain in the ass.
GMO or not, doesn’t matter much to me ’cause SOMEBODY out there is paying attention so, well.. truth be told, I don’t have to.
