In his view, the decision of the Russian government to cut wheat export will affect prices not only in Georgia, but also around the world. Yet process in August will remain the same due to reserves.
Bakur Kvezereli, the Minister of Agriculture, confirms the connection between increase of prices for bread in Georgia and cut of Russian wheat export.
"This decision of the Russian government turned out to be painful not only for Georgia, but for the entire region. Though Georgia has sufficient grain reserves and besides has alternative sources," the Minister said.
Georgia won't be able to buy grain from Russia from August 15th to December 31st. The reason is the order of Russian PM Vladimir Putin to embargo the export of wheat because of the massive fires in the country.
This decision will also affect prices fro bread at the world market. Till recently a sack of flour cost 33 lari [59.4 dollars] in Georgia. Now -35-37 lari [63-66 dollars].
