Which regions have become the most expensive to live in?


According to updated data from the State Statistics Service, the largest increase in indices was observed in the capital, where the value reached 102.6%. Significant increases in consumer price indices were also recorded in several other regions, most often in March. These include Lviv, Odesa, Zakarpattia, Kirovohrad, and Dnipro regions, where the index exceeded 101.3%.
