Price for vodka increases for second time this month in Belarus

The retail price for vodka has increased by 4% in Belarus today, on August 12. The sale price for spirits has increased by 6%. The Ministry of Economy explains that the decision was taken after a suggestion of “Belarusian State Food Industry” and “Belbiofarm” concerns in order to compensate for the rise of the excise price and a grain price rise. The previous price rise took place in July 11 – 10% for spirits and 4% for vodka.
