The authorities of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug decided to subsidize the air delivery of perishable products to the eastern regions of the region. This will make prices in stores more affordable and equalize them with the average cost of food in Anadyr. 

According to the press service of the regional government, the first subsidized flight has already delivered nine tons of vegetables and fruits, cheese, sausages, dairy products and eggs to stores in remote areas of Chukotka. About two tons were delivered to the village of Providence, another seven tons to Lawrence.

Experts say that subsidizing flights will reduce the price of a number of products by almost half. So, for example, the cost of a dozen eggs will fall from 500 to 195 rubles.
