Central Bank head Natalya Gontareva, who know doubt is responsible for the price inflation by keeping the central banks money printing presses in overdrive, is quite the optimist:
Our end target is 5 percent inflation. We want 12 percent in 2016, 8 percent in 2017, 6 percent in 2018 and 5 percent at the end of 2019.
Inflation in 2013 was only 0.5 percent and skyrocketed to 24.9 percent in 2014, according to RT.
Inflation in the country has been growing ever since the events of Maidan at the end of 2013, which resulted in the US-inspired overthrow of Viktor Yanukovich's government.
