The rise in prices of fruits and vegetables became the fourth half-month with the greatest impact on inflation in the first two weeks of April.

According to the National Consumer Price Index (NCPI), the 17.8 percent rise in this category ranks as one of the highest of the last decade.

Since late February, the price of agricultural products considerably rose, where fruits and vegetables increased by up to 27 points.
