Experts predicted a rise in prices in Russia due to the fall of the ruble

The fall in the ruble and the coronavirus epidemic will lead to a rise in prices for almost all imported goods in Russia by 10-35%. The products that international companies produce domestically, according to experts, will rise in price by a maximum of 10%.

According to the Federal State Statistics Service, on average about 36% of imported non-food products and only 21% of food products in the Russian market. But, according to statistics, in some regions the share of imports is much higher, which means that prices there will rise more significantly.

According to "Izvestia", may rise by 10-15%, and for a number of positions - by 30%, the cost of imported medicines and medical equipment. Small electronics can become more expensive by 20%, gadgets and large household appliances - by 20-35%. Baby goods, clothes and shoes will jump, according to economists, by 30%.

Cars will also add to the price, but not too much: Finam analysts believe that growth will be only 6-10%. Moreover, this will affect the domestic auto industry because of foreign equipment and components used at AvtoVAZ.

It is also possible that real estate prices will rise by 10-15%. Moreover, if the rate does not strengthen in the near future, then the cost of apartments in new buildings can jump by 20%.

Today, the largest airlines will recount prices for air tickets taking into account the new ruble exchange rate. Growth in this segment will be 10%. The only category of goods whose prices may remain within their current limits is agricultural products. In this area, according to the Ministry of Finance, import substitution was the most effective.
