Thus, the cost of the budget version of the New Year's table for a Ukrainian will be UAH 2879.15. Families who can afford to buy delicacies will have to pay an additional UAH 525. Depending on the manufacturer, a 120 g jar of red caviar will cost an average of UAH 280, and 200 g of red fish will cost UAH 245. Thus, the cost of a New Year's table with delicacies will amount to UAH 3404.15.

Thus, the cost of the budget version of the New Year's table for Kyiv residents will be UAH 3229, which is 10.1% more than last year. A table with delicacies will cost UAH 3,819.
