Just 4 months after the election, our money were worth 14.5% less.
If it is 1 April after the increase in pensions up to 14 137 ₽ it was equivalent to $247 (at the rate of 57.2 ₽ per dollar), now the average pension is only $211 (course 67).
Similarly, depreciated wages. But what matters to us dollar, exclaim the naysayers, we in rubles obtained?! Once again to clarify: along with the dollar rising prices of almost everything — and not just on imports, but manufactured in Russia, because most of them are used imported technology, equipment, resources. And business, leading payments in dollars, does not want to lose profits and raises prices.
Real incomes of Russians will continue to fall. But oil and gas companies, the growth rate of the dollar only on hand — because of the export of raw materials are calculated in dollars.
And people, as usual, remains “eat less”.
