This thesis provides a discussion of Russian agriculture in the twenty-first century. In 2014, Russia enforced a food ban disallowing trade with western countries. The impacts of the food ban for Russia and the western world are discussed, as well as a brief explanation of some of the domestic difficulties of Russian agriculture. Internationally, Russia must find new trading partners if it is to replace the missing foods as a result of the ban.
