Unrelated agricultural support is one of the equitable agricultural support mechanisms in developed countries. This paper describes the rules for unrelated support in the Federal Republic of Germany and in the Russian Federation. We proposed various institutional mechanisms to transform the system of rules for unrelated support in the Russian Federation to ensure sustainable long-term growth of the domestic agricultural sector.
