Since the beginning of martial law in Ukraine, there have been problems with the supply of goods in all stores. Also, people began to buy them in bulk, and a certain shortage arose for cereals, sugar, flour, bread and other important products.
“Today” talked with residents of different cities and found out what the situation is in supermarkets in Ukraine now.
The situation is different in different regions
Residents of Kyiv reportthat in some areas of the city there is not enough dairy products. The situation with eggs, meat and canned food has improved, but it is difficult to buy inexpensive cheese or sausage.
A resident of the Goloseevsky district of Kyiv notes that in supermarkets you can’t find fresh cucumbers, as well as dressings for borscht. But in general, the situation is stable, and the main products are available, their assortment has simply decreased.
The situation near Kiev is somewhat different. For example, it is very difficult to find fresh fish, the choice of cereals, cheeses and bread has significantly decreased. And sometimes it’s hard to find even salt or soda. Also, in the shops of some areas of the Kiev region there is no yeast and bananas.
But the situation in the country in the east it is much worse.
“In general, we have a food collapse in supermarkets. People live at the expense of small shops. In one supermarket, we only have pearl barley, flour, butter, some fruits and onions. It is impossible to buy sugar,” said a resident of the Donetsk region.
Residents of Dnipro report that it is impossible to find yeast and vanillin anywhere. Absolutely the situation is different in the west. For example, there are enough goods in Bukovel.
“Everything is here, except for the normal adequate prices”, locals write.
And here in Lviv dry rations, sweets and hygiene products disappeared from supermarkets. However, Lviv residents assume that this is due to the collection of humanitarian aid.
