From now on, one person can only purchase 3 kg of such socially important products as buckwheat, rice and sugar at Crimean food stores.
Messages to this effect have been put up at some supermarkets in occupied Crimea, reports Argumenty Nedeli - Crimea.
According to the experts, the restriction is meant to combat bulk purchase of food products which are then resold at a profit.
However, there is also the other side of the coin.
“This way they are creating an artificial demand to boost sales. Customers get a subconscious urge to buy food products for future use. The same products, which are but a fraction more expensive, are available next to these. And all this talk of speculators is simply ridiculous. They don’t really need to do that because they purchase food products from warehouses at the same discounted price,” the experts say.
