Reuters: Lukashenka Accelerates Inflation In Russia

Russian food producers have faced problems due to the crisis on the Belarusian-Polish border.

Russian food producers have faced problems due to the migration crisis at the Belarusian-Polish border, Reuters reports.

Due to the closure of checkpoints on the territory of Poland, trucks have accumulated, and created traffic jams. There were interruptions in the supply of raw materials. Importers incur losses and may suspend the operation of factories, - said the agency sources in the market.

Meanwhile, a new six-year record of price increases was recorded in Russia. In just the week from November 23 to November 29, the consumer price index rose by 0.46%.

The crisis escalated early last month, when Lukashenka began bringing thousands of people from the Middle East to the border with Poland. In response, Warsaw closed several border crossings, and threatened to completely stop traffic between the countries.
