Russian caviar prices surge

Moscow: Russians looking to indulge in their traditional winter holiday treat of red caviar will be disappointed this year as prices have hit historic highs, official figures showed on Monday. With Russia battling surging inflation, state statistics agency Rosstat said the market price for one kilogramme of red fish roe has surpassed the 5,000 ruble ($68, 60 euro) mark, the highest price since monitoring began in 2000. Caviar with butter on bread or pancakes is typically served for dinner on New Year’s Eve, Russia’s biggest annual holiday.
