Emergency Agricultural Insurance
Our new article “Emergency Agricultural Insurance” was published in the journal “Modern Insurance Technologies” (No. 4 (87) 2021). The article is devoted to Federal Law No. 177-FZ dated June 11, 2021 “On Amendments to the Federal Law ‘On State Support in the Field of Agricultural Insurance’…”. The law is important for the development of agricultural insurance in the Russian Federation, since it introduces a new institution - agricultural insurance with state support in case of occurrence of an emergency incident. The AKS Legal team, under the guidance of partners Kira Svintsova and Alexander Svintsov, and at the request of the National Association of Agricultural Insurers, took part in preparation of a number of rules of this law and regulatory acts to it.
