Unbalanced galloping inflation in Ukraine every month sets a new record: real wages are falling, And prices for food are rising, says Ukrainian economist.
"It is unthinkable price growth in 2014-2015, as well As the decrease in the level of funds coming caused due to various factors to the real impoverishment of the inhabitants," he says.
according to the information received, the state statistics service of Ukraine, within six months almost 2-fold increase in prices for fruits, vegetables, sunflower oil, soft drinks, rice and fish. Tariffs for housing, water, electricity and gas increased by 2, 2 times. The increase in the prices of transport were 22, 7%, And growth prices in the health sector - 24, 4%. The size of the real wage continues to decline, And most do not receive." To shift the consequences of galloping inflation, the devaluation of the hryvnia will not succeed, because the rate of the national currency in recent months is in the stable range. But administrative intervention in prices and Tariffs unwound another round of inflationary spiral, " - said Koltovich.
Thus an explanation of the actions of the government the necessity of a series of "have a little patience, And after will be better" is not working." the majority of international and domestic experts have many times stated that we should not be afraid of high prices, release rates to the level of the market or European. But the problem is that on a number of commodity items, the prices in Ukraine is several times higher than the prices for similar goods and services in many European countries. But income in Ukraine even with African countries already incomparable ", - concludes Ukrainian economist.
