Sanctions, inflation and the increase in VAT has had a strong effect on the cost of food in Russia. Manufacturers are forced to go to the trick to the goods sold.
Attention to novelty on the shelves of Russian stores turned to Twitter Russian Ramil Harisov, reports “Диалог.UA”.
Kharisov was impressed to discover in one of the supermarkets, non-standard packaging one of the most popular products in the world. The manufacturer has created a package of 9 eggs instead of 10 that cost 64 rubles (approximately 28 USD).
It turned out that such a trick gone, not only this manufacturer. So, in the last years in Russia the packaging of cow’s milk and beer decreased by 0.05 liters of sour cream 35 grams, chocolate is 8 grams of mayonnaise 50 grams. The prices not only remained unchanged, but on the contrary greatly increased.
The cause of such economic hardship – policy of the Putin regime, which has led to the introduction against Russia sanctions, and on the other, it is characterised by rapidly impoverished population unaffordable taxes.
We will remind, earlier “Диалог.UA” reported that after the New year in Russia sharply increased the price of fuel – the Russians don’t know how to survive.
