Relevance of the article is caused by the necessity of developing agro-food policy of the Russian Federation taking into consideration WTO accession. After accession to WTO polarization of rural space will increase. The country will be more open for import at the lowered competitiveness of the Russian agriculture. Value of the analysis of the internal and external factors weakening food security of the Russian Federation and extraction of useful products of other states for agrarian and industrial complex will increase. The purpose of research is to analyze the problem of food security in terms of the WTO and its agro-food policy. Methods of research include: theoretical study on Russia’s WTO accession, the establishment of internal and external factors that weaken food security of the Russian state. Approximately 90 % of Russian publications on WTO dealt with the assessment of possible consequences of Russia’s accession to the organization as a result of changes in import tariffs, as well as government support of the economy (especially the agricultural sector). These are the consequences that lie on the surface and may affect the business and the citizens soon after the country’s accession to the WTO. But a number of implications not only calculated, but is not even discussed. In particular, it may cause complete transition Russia’s natural resources under the control of multinational banks and corporations. The issue of food security is complex, directly related to sustainable macroeconomic development of the state and its capacity to implement socially oriented policy, a steady rise in the standard of living of the population, the benefits of international division of labor in agricultural production. The basis of food security is primarily improving the efficiency of domestic agriculture and basic industries.
