The prices for pet products have risen sharply in the stores of Crimea for the last two days.

The sellers of one of the pet chain stores said that the prices increased in average by 3-5%.

“Of course, I am only a seller and can’t give you an expert opinion as for the reason of such price rise, but I consider it stems directly from Crimea’s blockade because some of our products we ordered in Ukraine,” said the seller.

Example only: Bazik fish feed was sold at the price of RUB 350 per package last Friday, but now the price is RUB 400.
