- Regardless of the level of its political, socio-economic development and the situation in the world, every state has to solve certain national problems, among them the problem of sustainable supply of the population with its own (domestic) food. To this end, it develops and strengthens its agro-industrial complex (AIC), which includes branches both for the production of agricultural products and for its processing. Food security is considered one of the main objectives of the country's agricultural policy. However, the Russian Federation currently has an underdeveloped agro-industrial complex that is not able to ensure the country's food security or to solve the problem of reliable supply of the population with domestic food in accordance with approved medical norms and requirements. This becomes even more evident in the context of toughening of Western sanctions, when food becomes one of the main factors of political and economic pressure of economically developed countries against Russia, which is humiliating for it as a state that actually has one of the largest agrarian potentials in the world. The article discusses the issues of ensuring the food security of our country, which come to the fore in connection with the expansion of economic sanctions by the US and the EU.
