“We see that in general we still manage to keep the situation under control.

We know that the market is under pressure from a number of factors, which pushes the level of food prices to volatility, but at the same time, the government is still quite effective in absorbing the influence of these factors, ”said Peskov.

Earlier, the Russian government decided to strengthen control over prices for basic goods and services and is introducing constant monitoring.

This will be done by the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade together with Rosstat and the Federal Antimonopoly Service.

It is noted that certain groups of goods and services will be assigned to specialized Russian departments.

Leading expert of the Center for Political Technologies, Doctor of Economics, Professor Nikita Maslennikov, in an interview with FBA "Economics Today" commented on the situation with prices for poultry and eggs.
