Rising Commodity Prices In Afghanistan, The Main Reason Is The War In Ukraine

Date: May 12, 2022, 12:31

Statistical revisionists attribute the rise in flour and oil prices to the Ukraine war.

Afghanistan imported more flour and oil than Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan and Malaysia, and these countries have now cut or reduced their exports to Afghanistan.

As flour and oil prices rise in the capital's markets, the Chamber of Commerce says that because of the war in Ukraine, Malaysia has reduced its oil exports to all countries, including Afghanistan.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock says that Afghanistan's crop and irrigated wheat have been damaged in some provinces due to floods and hot weather.

The price of 50 kilos of flour in the capital markets has risen to 150 afghanis, and the price of 16 liters of oil has risen to 200 afghanis.
