The level of the real incomes of the Crimean population decreases much more rapidly than in the Russian Federation, which is caused by the higher level of inflation on the peninsula. This opinion was expressed by the professor of the Moscow State University Natalia Zubarevich.
“A drop in the real incomes in Crimea was deeper than at the Russian average. The reason is absolutely clear – higher inflation and price increase on the peninsula is more than that one in Russia”, said Zubarevich.
According to her, the population incomes are down by 5%, mean wages in 2015 – by 9.5% and the retail trade – by 10%.
