MOSCOW, August 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Vice-Premier Arkady Dvorkovich on Wednesday called rumors about soaring prices for the products of Russia’s major fish trader Russkoye More (Russian Sea) a provocation.
“There are rumors that fish prices have increased, and Russkoye More was mentioned. We checked it and it was wrong. Information was false. Probably, it was circulated with the purpose to provoke rumors,” he said. “We hope that there will be no price hikes,” Dvorkovich said.
Russkoye More Group is engaged in sale of fish and other seafood and in aquaculture fish breeding at its farms in Russia’s northern Murmansk region and north-western Republic of Karelia. Earlier, mass media reported that the price of chilled salmon had increased by over 80% up to 600 rubles (almost $17) per kilogram.
Dvorkovich said the Russian government was developing measures to bring Far Eastern fish to the European part of Russia where it is in demand.
“We are developing measures to deliver fish products to the regions that generate the biggest demand in Russia,” he said.
