Chukotka will monitor food prices

In the Chukotka Autonomous Region, an operational headquarters has been set up to monitor and respond to changes in the food market environment, the press service of the regional administration said. The head of the headquarters, the governor of the Chukotka Autonomous Region, Roman Kopin, informed that the headquarters includes the heads of municipal districts, representatives of the executive branch and a number of state enterprises in the okrug.

- The main goal of the work of headquarters members is to preserve the balance of commodity markets in Chukotka and to prevent the unreasonable rise in prices for food products. Today it is especially important - in connection with the introduction by the Russian Federation of retaliatory economic sanctions against Western countries, we have stopped the traditional import into the region of vegetables, fruits and meat produced in the United States of America. This situation may affect the pricing of a number of grocery products, said Roman Kopin.

As the head of the Department of Finance, Economics and Property Relations of the Chukotka Autonomous Region, Andrei Mingazov, said, such operational headquarters were established in the territories of all constituent entities of the Russian Federation.

- Chukotka daily monitors and controls the state of food markets. According to the latest data from the operational headquarters, there was no unreasonable increase in food prices, there are enough food in the stores of the district, which includes all the necessary commodity items, Andrei Mingazov pointed out.

He noted that the delivery of food to Chukotka takes place in the normal mode. As part of this year’s navigation, more than 60% of the planned volume of foodstuffs was delivered to the settlements of the district.
