A new register of retail prices and a dashboard have been launched in Ukraine for the period of lockdown, the press service of the Ministry of Digital Transformation reports.
"Essential goods must be available to every Ukrainian during the pandemic. Therefore, for the period of quarantine, we have launched a new price declaration service," the statement said.
The information is stored in a central database in the form of a single register. Inspectors of the State Food and Consumer Service monitor the process through the office without unnecessary communication with business, and Ukrainians monitor price changes through a public dashboard.
Price declarations will apply to anti-epidemic goods (antiseptics, disinfectants, certain medicines, personal protective equipment), as well as goods of acute social importance (bread, milk, cereals, etc.).
As we reported earlier, Ukraine may receive the first tranche of financial assistance from the World Bank in July 2020.
"It is planned to receive several loans. First of all, these are IMF payments by the end of 2020 (the first tranche was $ 2.1 billion, the amount of the second and third - $ 1.4 billion). We also plan to receive macro-financial assistance from the European Commission (1,2 billion euros + 0.5 billion euros)," the report said.
