The cost of food is rocketing in the occupied territory of Donetsk oblast, in particular, of meat and vegetables. Separatist media wrote this. At the same time, the reasons are called whatever, just not corresponding to reality. So, leader of the "DNR" Denis Pushilin explained to the residents of CADO that the rise in prices was a global trend. "The main reason is imported components of compound feed, the cost of which has rocketed. Consequently, compound feed is becoming more expensive, and it makes up about 60–70% of chicken production costs. Therefore, the price of chicken continues to grow", - Pushilin explained. Users recalled in comments on this issue in social networks that until recently, the Miners' Poultry Factory operated on the territory of CADO, which sold chicken at more or less acceptable prices. It was reported about a month ago that a Russian "investor" would come to this poultry farm and the enterprise would be rebranded. However, the factory never started working. "There is no longer any poultry farm. There are Russian chickens at 175 rubles per kilogram. That is all", - the residents wrote. They are also outraged: "Why did the carrots and beets rise in price, also because of the rise in prices for compound feed, and what about pork?" Alexey Polovian, who calls himself the "DNR Minister of Economic Development", also tried to explain the situation. According to him, the "republic" does not provide itself with pork and vegetables. "We have a limited territory, we cannot afford to grow everything", - Polovian complained.
