Frosty weather has blocked trade in Ukraine and reduced the number of tradesmen, but those, who still stay a course, have problems with suppliers. This situation has created serious discomfort for consumers, and in the future it may cause price rises.

Entrepreneurs say that it's no use to freeze, because buyers in recent days don't go marketing, while static stores are full of costumers.

The only category of food products whose prices are showing growth is fruit and vegetable products. Prices have risen by 3-5% depending on the type of vegetables.

The rise in prices is explained by the fact that some farmers stopped selling their products. Experts believe that this price increase will have a short-term effect and will result greater collapse of the cost.
