As of today, sale prices for some baked goods rose in Kiev by 25 to 30 percent. Kievkhleb stated that bread prices went up “due to the rapid depreciation of the grivnya and exchange rate fluctuations, which caused a significant rise in price of flour, sugar, oil, electricity, and gas, which led to an increase in the cost of production”. This is the third price increase for baked goods this year. The last price increases were on 18 February, when they went up 10-12 percent. Now, better-quality bread that sold for 5.95 grivnya (17 Roubles. 1.75 Renminbi. 18 INR. 0.28 USD. 0.35 CAD. 0.36 AUD. 0.26 Euros. 0.19 UK Pounds) six weeks ago now sells for 8.58 grivnya (25 Roubles. 2.50 Renminbi. 25 INR. 0.40 USD. 0.51 CAD. 0.52 AUD. 0.38 Euros. 0.27 UK Pounds). Average-quality breads rose 2.34 grivnya (7 Roubles. 0.70 Renminbi. 7 INR. 0.11 USD. 0.13 CAD. 0.14 AUD. 0.10 Euros. 0.07 UK Pounds) to 7.20 grivnya (20 Roubles. 2 Renminbi. 21 INR. 0.34 USD. 0.42 CAD. 0.44 AUD. 0.32 Euros. 0.23 UK Pounds). The new price increase doesn’t apply to bread sold at discount for social welfare, which one can purchase online in specialty stores. Increases in bread prices affect all segments of the population, especially pensioners, as the Ukrainian government slashed benefits, pensions, and public salaries per IMF diktat. The average monthly pension now stands at 1,000 grivnya (2,830 Roubles. 290 Renminbi. 2,900 INR. 47 USD. 59 CAD. 61 AUD. 44 Euros. 32 UK Pounds) per month, but the cost of bread rose by 30 to 40 percent so far.

Prices are going up… wages/pensions stagnate or fall. Note well that the Rabbit, Choco, Turdchinov, Klichko, Avakov, Denisenko, and Shevchuk all refuse to cut their profligate lifestyles. Actual exchange rates are about double the above rates, that is, if you want 1 USD, you have to pay 50 grivnya to get it. That means that the average pension is really worth 20 USD (1,220 Roubles. 125 Renminbi. 1,250 INR. 26 CAD. 26 AUD. 19 Euros. 13.50 UK Pounds) a month… that’s not even Third World wages! This is the end result of 24 years of Galician Uniate Consciousness… the richest portion of the USSR is now lower than Somalia is… and the USA LAUGHS. I call that EVIL… I’m NOT alone…
