Kyivkhlib PJSC [one of Ukraine's biggest bread producers - ed.] has announced an increase in the prices for basic types of product from Dec. 1, 2015.
The Government is preparing a draft decree on the exemption of a number of products, including meat, eggs and vegetable oil from state regulation which can lead to a rise in food prices.
Kyivkhlib PJSC, the largest metropolitan producer of bread and bakery products starting November 12 increased the price of 'Ukrainian Capital Hearth' bread and a loaf of sliced "Kyiv" by 17% and 9.7% respectively.
As soon as the polling stations closed, Ukraine once again hears rumors regarding bread prices. After the election battles people believe it. On the morning of the second day many stores put out new price tags and people rushed to make stocks.
According to Prime Minister Mykola Azarov in 2.5 years of government's work the consumer price index has increased by only 10%.
Due to a poor crop of food grain in Europe, the bread prices in Ukraine may hike, announced the Minister of Social Policy Sergey Tigipko.
During the period August 10-14, the prices on socially important products have increased by an average of 0.1-1.6 %, namely by 1.2% on sugar.
