Abstract: N.A. Tretyak4, R.A. Grafov5 The paper deals with the international and Russian structural problems in agriculture. The objective of the paper is to evaluate the structural changes in the agricultural sector of Russia and how they are affected from the \'sectoral\' sanctions and the food commodity import substitution policy. The authors have studied the structure of the main commodity groups influencing the solution of the import substitution problem. They have also computed the basic indicators of the corresponding structural shifts and have highlighted the most efficient groups of the agricultural producers. The paper presents an econometric model of the structural shifts and the assessment of the level of self-sufficiency with agricultural production in Russia. The research has been conducted based on the methodology of structural analysis represented in the scientific pursuits of the foreign and national scientists. It also contains the suggestions about the necessity of strengthening the structural policy in the animal husbandry.
