Donetsk, Lugansk and Rostov measured bananas: where is cheaper

Where bananas are cheaper, a blogger from Lugansk decided to find out. Probably, by analogy with the Big Mac index, he decided to compare the standard of living in Lugansk, Donetsk and in the Rostov region using bananas.

He wrote about this in his author's telegram channel "Journalism with taste" (Although now there is a danger that evil tongues will call him "Journalism with taste of banana").

"And now a little about prices in Lugansk, it is not in vain that people write and say that we have some products that are twice as expensive as in Rostov, and in general the prices (with the exception of taverns) are Moscow ones." , - the author wrote in his telegram channel and posted a check from the Magnit store, located in the city of Taganrog, Rostov region of the Russian Federation.

And for comparison, and bananas with a price tag in the Luhansk store "Spar":

“In the Rostov magnet, the price of bananas is 62.99 rubles. In the Luhansk pair - 117.28 rubles. For other products, the difference is relatively the same, "the author concludes (the style and spelling of the original are preserved).

Residents of Donbass joined the discussion, someone agreed with the author, someone doubted the correctness of his economic theory.

A resident of Donetsk added a photo of a banana from a local store in the comments for completeness.

The cost of bananas in Donetsk is 95 rubles per kilogram.

So, the Luhansk banana is the most expensive banana presented.

But the experiment can be continued. We are waiting for a photo of bananas with prices from Moscow, Kiev and Washington.
