GORKI (near Moscow), January 8. /TASS/. Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev ordered the government to undertake all necessary measures to exclude unreasonable growth of food prices.
“Lately, because of the situation around rouble, and for other reasons the food inflation has jumped up,” he told a meeting with Minister of Agriculture Nikolai Fedotov on Thursday.
“I would like you jointly with the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service and, where necessary, with the police, to follow the situation in the food markets. Attract all the governors to this work,” the prime minister said.
“It is necessary to work together with owners of store chains, with producers, with mediators, not to allow unreasonable growth of prices,” the prime minister said.
By saying unreasonable growth, he said, he meant “a speculative margin, which is taken off several economic factors, including the situation with currency.”.
