March 24. FINMARKET.RU – This year prices for alcoholic beverages will continue to grow. According to Vadim Drobiz, director of the Center for Research on Federal and Regional Alcohol Markets, prices for domestically produced vodka and beer will grow by at least 5%. Lovers of Russian wines will have to fork out even more: prices will jump by 10-15%, since a 40% shortage of raw materials is expected on the market. As the expert explained, this is due to the ban on the use of imported wine materials in Russian production, Izvestia writes.
