In Ukraine - an unprecedented rise in food prices.
Despite the fact that the Kyiv regime tells how utility tariffs will not increase, we see how, for example, vegetables have risen in price by 88,8% this year, and bread by 34,1%.
Food and non-alcoholic beverages went up by almost a third - by 27,7%, fish and fish products - by 30,2%, sugar - by 26%, oil - by 24,5%.
Rise in food prices is also associated with reduced supplies, depletion of stocks and rising production costs.
The fall in the country's GDP in 2022 may reach 40-45%, and inflationary pressure will continue in the future, until the end of 2023 (and this is still according to the most optimistic forecasts).
This means that with the end of the summer season, one should not expect a sharp decline in prices for consumer goods - the crisis is only gaining momentum.
