Of course, they don’t come out and say it plainly. You have to look at a small placard on the bottom shelf, almost near the baseboard… it says, “Bread from a simplified recipe”. That is, it’s just flour and water. There’s no fat at all, there isn’t any milk, not to mention higher-quality white flour or vitamin supplements. It’s nothing but pig swill… just bran and water. However, the price is pleasing… just over 3 Grivna (8.25 Roubles. 0.23 USD. 0.25 CAD. 0.25 AUD. 0.17 Euros. 0.14 UK Pounds) per loaf. It’s a brazen trick to disguise price increases on bread and flour, crop failures, and other signs of “new life”. When people ask at the shops, “Just what is this new kind of bread?”, the shop assistants look away or they pretend that they don’t know what kind of orphan loaves are in the plastic bags near the toasted walnuts and ciabatta. The price of bread in Kiev increased by at least one Grivna per loaf… “Ukrainian” bread costs more than 5 Grivna (13.75 Roubles. 0.38 USD. 0.41 CAD. 0.41 AUD. 0.28 Euros. 0.23 UK Pounds) and French bread is almost 6 Grivna (16.50 Roubles. 0.46 USD. 0.50 CAD. 0.50 AUD. 0.34 Euros. 0.28 UK Pounds). Sweet pastries like “Dnepr Bulki” cost 10.50 Grivna (29 Roubles. 0.80 USD. 0.86 CAD. 0.86 AUD. 0.60 Euros. 0.49 UK Pounds), cheese palochka are 3.45 Grivna (9.50 Roubles. 0.26 USD. 0.29 CAD. 0.29 AUD. 0.19 Euros. 0.16 UK Pounds), and ordinary pita bread ranges from 6 to 7 Grivna (16.50-19.25 Roubles. 0.46-0.54 USD. 0.50-0.58 CAD. 0.50-0.58 AUD. 0.34-0.40 Euros. 0.28-0.32 UK Pounds). Managers of many large retailers already recognise what’s happening, so, they’re reducing the variety of their products… for buns and tarts are going stale on the shelves.
21 August 2014
The average pension in the Ukraine is 500 Grivna (1,375 Roubles. 38 USD. 42 CAD. 41 AUD. 28 Euros. 23 UK Pounds) per month… the average wage is only double that. If a pensioner bought only the cheapest “bread”… a loaf a day to make up the bulk of their food, it’d cost them 90 Grivna (248 Roubles. 7 USD. 7.50 CAD. 7.50 AUD. 5.25 Euros. 4.25 UK Pounds) a month JUST FOR BREAD, that’s 18 percent of their income! Just you watch… adulterated bread is next. The junta is in the deep shit. Oligarch shits and political banditti like Rabbit Yatsenyuk and Turdchinov stole the money that it got from the West (I’ll bet ya that Darlin’ Yuliya had her hand in the cookie jar, too). Ah, the joys of unbridled laissez-faire crapitalism… as endorsed by Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Rod Dreher, and Willy Romney…
Yuliya, the Rabbit, the Klichkos, and Turdchinov are dining on filet mignon and truffles… their heavily armed bodyguards are outside to keep the unwashed out… oh, yes… that’s what the USA slobbers over and calls “democratic”… so does the UGKTs, by the way. Christ Himself recoils at their swinish and slavish obsequiousness to power… how much longer will such evil go unpunished and unrequited?
