Experts are not identified in the local networks of unjustified price increases. The FAC said that a similar trend was recorded at one of the retailers operating in the Amur region.

the Reason for testing was the increase in prices for fruit and vegetable production in the far East, which was provoked by the epidemic of coronavirus in Russia. After the supply resumed, prices began to stabilize.

Previously, due to this epidemic, the Federal Antimonopoly service has started to monitor the prices of medical masks and antiviral medicinal drugs. Against the backdrop of massive demand independent pharmacies have overstated the value of these means of protection and prevention.
