are dealing with drought and wildfires the northwest has been hit by a ferocious storm hurricane strength winds struck the same petersburg region damaging infrastructure and causing power cuts to one hundred thousand people the cost of the electricity companies is estimated to be in excess of thirty million dollars also is expected to the next in the storm's path although the winds now have lessened. time check the markets now and u.s. stocks are rising after reports showed wholesale prices climbed the first time since march and also there's been a jump in industrial production over in europe with minus the top again ism footsie calls work as opposed to the thirty six percent increase in the second quarter profit which is we mean well as the world received by the market the daily mirror credited improvement in the russian market and a better rueful exchange rate. i don't rush in markets are higher as we approach the end of the session with both the bulls is trading up more than one percent but
10:26 am
the rise of john and or colleagues gained over three percent you know surveillance karimov moves to chief rival soviets. and worrying signs for russia now in the economy where wage wage arrears shot up eleven percent compared to june the federal statistics service says the backlog has now hit one hundred twelve million dollars it comes despite president rigid ordering bigger followings for employees who hold back salaries. the top officials admitted foreigners they serious problems in bringing goods across the border into russia but the country's finance minister has changes to the law as a new customs union comes into force. and russia last month formed a single customs area and promised less checks. it's forty four percent of goods coming into russia are held up at the border and inspected in the u.k. that figure is just two percent we want a new bill and customs regulations to come into force in october the first. now
10:27 am
grown from russia's national reserves will not be used for export beginning of this week the government impose a blanket ban on producers selling grain abroad in response to the severe drought have been speculation in the commodities markets the government would use its own reserves to fill some foreign contracts but speaking exclusively to our t. the head of the joint grain company sergei levin says this will not be possible. well guardian what at this point the intervention stock has nine million one hundred forty thousand tonnes of grain the intervention stock could be used differently depending on the situation last year and in the beginning of this year the country had excessive amounts of grain interventions don't put pressure on the internal market that's why it was necessary to export this grain but the situation has changed drastically we cannot talk about excessive amounts of grain on the internal market now we are saying that we have a necessary safety net so we are not talking about exporting the intervention stock
10:28 am
any more what we are talking about is the need to decide which of the internal consumers it should best be given to in other words to which of the affected regions it should go in the first place and in what scope this decision must be made by the government i think it will happen as mr zucker have said within the next two weeks. ago what is russia's current storage capacity to hit if you look at the statistics the federal service of states to six reports that we have a total storage capacity of about one hundred eighteen million tonnes but that includes all types of grain storage is both the modern ones equipped with climate control systems and the old grain arrays and bonds dating back to pre-war times honestly i think that only about one third of the storage is are up to more than requirements and how has the drought. affected your strategy until two thousand and fifteen start there given that another company of the strategy of the united grain company includes large scale investments into the green market infrastructure
10:29 am
construction of new storage is and trans shipment elevators as well as an upgrade of the existing facilities going forward to two thousand and fifteen there will be significant changes in the grain distribution patterns inside the country because over the last few years there was quite a distinct distribution the southern region produce grain for export while the central region and siberia produce grain for internal consumption this is going to change now and the grain from the south is going to be consumed internally as well and we'll certainly have to rethink our strategy. and i'm sure update for now we can always find more of our stories on our website r.t. dot com slash business. thank you it will.
