Commodity reserves are at the level prescribed by law and are currently managed. There is no need to activate them, because there is no shortage of food and energy, said Prime Minister Dimitar Kovachevski at Tuesday’s press briefing.
“Currently, there is an uninterrupted supply of oil derivatives, which has been constant since the beginning of the crisis, because we are supplied from the port of Thessaloniki. Over 70 percent of it is oil that is not of Russian origin,” Kovachevski said.
The Prime Minister stressed that it is managed daily and weekly in terms of reserves that the state has, and that we do not have a shortage of food in the country, because it ensures a smooth flow of food through neighboring countries, Albania, Greece and Serbia.
Regarding the prices of the products in the retail, Kovachevski said that he is aware of certain abuses and will not allow some of the distributors to artificially increase the prices with large margins. He announced that the inspections will work in the field and there will be no selection in law enforcement.
