SIMFEROPOL, September 21. /TASS/. Crimea’s retail chains have sufficient food reserves, the local Industrial Policies Ministry has said, adding that the variety of foods and essentials available from local retail chains was being monitored on the daily basis.
"At the moment the state of affairs in retail trade is stable. All chains have sufficient reserves of foods, including the socially sensitive items. Bread and baked products, milk and dairy products, and meat and meat products are delivered to the retail chains on time and in sufficient amounts," the ministry said.
Earlier, Crimea’s head Sergey Aksyonov said that Ukrainian goods accounted for no more than five percent of all products on offer. If their supply from Ukraine ends, it will take two weeks to replace them.
"At the moment, 95% of the foods on offer are of Russian manufacture. If the trend persists, there will be not a single Ukrainian item on sale in two weeks from now," Aksyonov said on the Rossiya-24 round-the-clock news channel.
Last Sunday Ukrainian activists launched what they called civil blockade of Crimea blocking trucks carrying foods to the peninsula at the border checkpoints. Several hundred trucks are waiting in lines towards three checkpoints at Ukraine’s border with Crimea.
