A report released by the CIA has put Ukraine at the bottom of the list of nations with the worst inflation rate.

Ukraine is followed by Venezuela but only because there is no statistic data available for this country.

Ukraine’s inflation rate is worse than in such warring nations as Syria (33,6%), Southern Sudan (41,1%) and Yemen (30%).

Russia’s inflation rate is 15,4%, Belorussia’s - 15%, and Kazakhstan’s - 5,3%.

The list is topped by Lebanon with 3,5%, the Northern Mariana Islands with 2,5% and Afghanistan with 1,9%. Greece (1,4%) and Switzerland (1,1%) are ranked the fourth and fifth respectively.
