Ukraine: Inflation hits one-year high in March
April 10, 2017
In March, consumer prices rose 1.8% from the previous month, which followed February’s 1.0% increase. March’s reading was driven by soaring prices for clothing and footwear as well as higher prices for housing, electricity, gas and other fuels.
Inflation edged up from February’s 14.2% to 15.1% in March—a 12-month high. However, annual average inflation continued to ease, falling from 11.1% in February to 10.6% in March, the lowest result since November 2014.
