Conditions for growth of prices for bread in Russia at the moment, told journalists the head of Federal Antimonopoly service Igor Artemyev.

«As for the rise in bread prices, the conditions for the growth of prices for bread is not» — he said.

According to Artemyev, the rise in gasoline prices is not the cause of the increased cost of bread. «We once begins to grow gasoline, so everyone starts to use it and to say that we need tickets for Railways, aviation and more to raise the bread to lift and everything else,» he said.

«At this level, the yield, which reached by our peasants, and this level of exports… the government, if there is a threat of rising prices on bread, just may limit grain exports, and accordingly, the price of the domestic grain market will fall sharply. And in this case it just compensates for the increase that actually took place, as the increase in diesel fuel,» — said the head of FAS.

Earlier in October, two bread-baking complex of the Krasnoyarsk territory, «Archlib» and «Dikhleb» to notify their counterparties of the forced increase in prices for the manufactured products: «Arlab» — an average of 10%, «Dikhleb» — by 8-12%. Bakeries explained the need to increase prices to a number of factors, in particular rising prices of petrol, increase in electricity tariffs and the rise in flour prices, inflation and the weakening of the ruble.
