As UNIAN wrote, according to experts, a sharp rise in the price of cucumbers in Ukraine was caused by a change in the weather.
As UNIAN reported earlier, according to Zakaz.ua analysts, over the six months of the full-scale war of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, the price of onions on the Ukrainian market has more than doubled – by 114%, the average cost of which in the capital’s supermarkets is 42.8 UAH / kg.
Such a significant price difference is associated with a reduction in production areas for this crop and a sharp decline in onion yield.
