I used to be providing to spend these colossal funds on the locations the place individuals had been already dwelling and farming to assist them scale the assets and grain manufacturing and simply part of it to place into exploration of the brand new lands. Nevertheless, they spent billions on this venture after which they confronted logistic issues – tons of grain had been spoiled, there have been no roads, you couldn’t even take it away from there! It was all Krushev – he was like a mad horse – he obtained an concept and began shifting quick. The thought means nothing – there needed to be the calculations, economical causes, and so forth. Discuss to individuals, and so forth. However no – he was like Come on! Come on, lets’ do it! Began planting grains on over 50 million hectares of land! And it was all ineffective!”
