Support The Moscow Times!

Consumer Prices Stable

Consumer prices were unchanged in the week to April 28, after rising 0.1 percent for four consecutive weeks, the State Statistics Service said.

This keeps the cumulative increase in prices since the start of the year at 1.8 percent, compared with 4.2 percent in the same period of 2011.

Headline inflation was steady at a record post-Soviet low of 3.7 percent in March, year on year, but it is expected to pick up significantly in the coming months, after a freeze on gas and power prices is lifted and base effects disappear.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
