Abstract: Food security issues in the context of regional conflicts and sanctions wars are becoming a priority in ensuring the independence of the state, the stability of its functioning and development. Our country has a wide variety of different natural resources, including lands suitable for agricultural production, which allows us to meet our needs for almost all major types of food. But, nevertheless, there are still some types for which import is required. Basically, these are those types of crop production that cannot be cultivated in our country due to natural and climatic conditions. Stable supply of such types of food from other countries is possible only if there are long-term international agreements on mutually beneficial terms. The most effective form of such international cooperation is economic unions, including the Eurasian Economic Union. The advantage of the economic union is that it allows you to take into account the interests of all its members as much as possible, simplifies the movement of all types of resources and goods, allow you to pay for them in national currencies. The Common Economic Space ensures the most optimal use of the resources of its member countries on the basis of the international division of labour.
