- In a difficult economic situation, an important role belongs to the state policy of import substitution. The problems of import substitution become even more urgent in connection with the Western sanctions imposed against Russia in connection with the events in Ukraine. In 2014, several Western countries, led by the United States, announced severe sanctions against the Russian economy. This intensified the process of import substitution in Russia, including both agriculture and processing industries of the agro-industrial complex. In this regard, there has been a decline in food imports from abroad and an increase in the growth rate of food production, oriented to the domestic market. The authors make a valid conclusion that an economically literate policy of import substitution in the agro-industrial complex and other sectors of the economy can become a catalyst for overcoming the technical gap, reviving the investment climate, and increasing its own production of food in necessary quantities in accordance with medical norms of consumption. In this study, the authors not only analyze the main problems of import substitution, but also determine the crucial ways to accelerate these processes in Russia. The article states that, despite numerous difficulties, the policy of import substitution in the agrarian and industrial complex of modern Russia has all chances for success.
