Analysts of opposition party “Batkivschyna” have estimated inflation rate in 2010 on 42%. Consumer Price Index, according to the party, was 142.3% instead of 109.1% as the government stated. According to analysts, the average food basket in December 2010 has reached 57.3% of the Ukrainians’ income. The party considers that the government understates the rate of inflation deliberately.
