June 8, Fineko/abc.az. In Russia, sellers may be required to specify the price per kilogram or liter of goods.

ABC.AZ reports that a bill providing for this requirement has been submitted to the State Duma.

"An increase in prices hides behind the reduction in packaging or reduction in weight. This means deceiving the buyer," Chernyshov explains.

For example, now milk and juices are sold in bottles of 0.9-0.8 liters, and cereals in bags of 0.8 kg.
