According to it, Moscow (Russia) had the maximum average consumer prices for basic foodstuffs in November 2018 compared with the rest of the capitals of the EEU countries. In November 2018, the maximum average consumer price for eggs ($ 1.07 per dozen) was recorded in Moscow, and the minimum ($ 0.82) — in Astana (Kazakhstan).

The minimum average consumer price for mutton ($ 4.07 for 1 kilogram) in November 2018 was registered in Bishkek, and for pasteurized milk ($ 0.62 per 1 liter) — in Minsk (Belarus).

In November 2018, the average consumer price for pasteurized milk in Bishkek was higher than in the capital of Kazakhstan, Astana. In addition, in November 2018, the average prices for bread made from first-grade flour in Bishkek exceeded their level in Astana by 35 percent, and for potatoes — by 4.3 percent.

But the comparison of the purchasing power of an average monthly salary is far from being in favor of the capital of Kyrgyzstan. Due to low wages ($ 303.9), Bishkek lags behind other EEU capitals.

For example, one can buy 2.6 times less products for Bishkek salary than in Moscow.

Brazil’s version of Trump: why is it a «wake-up call» for the world?

<p style="text-align: justify;">A racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, a pro-torturer. Because of the profane outbursts and verbal abuse, he has earned such an image and was even considered as a political clown. Once he insulted lawmaker claiming that she was too ugly to be worth of raping. What is more, he said that he’d rather have a dead son than a gay one. Therefore, analysts concluded that Brazil has elected the most extremist president among democratic countries. So why did Brazil decide to make «really radical shift»? How did such an «extreme» and «unpleasant» figure become a president?<br /> </p>
