Belarus will raise prices for partners in the customs union

Minsk will gradually raise prices for consumer goods to the level of Russia and Kazakhstan - partners of Belarus in the Customs Union. Director of the Department of Pricing Policy of the Ministry of Economy of Belarus Igor Fomin stated this at a press conference in Minsk today. The official promised that the equalization of prices would be gradual.
 
“If we go to a single economic space, without customs borders, there can be no price spread a priori. It can be within the transport component so that there is no point in exporting it, ”RBC quotes Igor Fomin. According to the official, the liberalization of pricing will continue, although state regulation of prices will be partially retained, in particular with respect to housing and communal services, natural monopolies, essential goods, as well as socially significant products. Let us remind you that earlier the Belarusian government adopted a decree expanding the list of socially important goods that can be subject to price regulation for up to 90 days.
 
At the same time, Belarus decided to unfreeze prices for socially significant goods. “We do not refuse point impact on prices, we do not exclude such an opportunity for certain social goods. But it will not be permanent, it will be temporary, with monitoring the situation on the consumer market, ”said Igor Fomin. The official also noted that the introduction in June of restrictions on the export of motor fuel and a number of products and goods outside the republic was a “temporary measure” due to the sharp devaluation of the Belarusian ruble.

Recall, from May 24, the National Bank of the country was forced to devalue the national currency: the official dollar exchange rate rose immediately by 56%, from 3155 to 4930 Belarusian rubles, and the national currency formally fell by 36% against the dollar. A landslide devaluation in Belarus caused a significant decrease in incomes of Belarusian citizens, writes retailer.ru
