Bananas up 40%

Russian Federation: Prices of imports are rising

Prices of goods have spiked across the board in Russia. In a Moscow supermarket, the price of bananas has risen about 40 percent over the past week. Sources in Ecuador say that bananas that have nowhere to go are rotting in the fields because of the sanctions and a halt of shipments.

Before the start of the military operation, more than 20% of Ecuador's exported bananas went to Russia. But sanctions against Moscow have put a pause on shipments into Russia from European ports.

Likewise among other imported goods, according to the Russian statistics service Rosstat, in the past week, sugar prices rose 14 percent, onions are up 13.7 percent. Prices for diapers, black tea and toilet paper rose about 4 percent. Analysts say any imported goods Russia relies on could be more expensive not only due to shipping sanctions, but also the depreciation of the ruble.
