According to correspondents of “Chronicles of Turkmenistan”, ration packs will no longer be delivered to residents of Ashgabat.
The decision is explained by the fact that groceries from ration packs sold to residents are also available in the markets and privately-owned stores at similar or slightly higher prices.
It appears that the next step might be handing over the network of state-run stores and warehouses to entrepreneurs via privatization.
Chicken drumsticks which are included in ration packs were last delivered to Ashgabat residents in early June. In early and middle June eggs were included in ration packs.
After that ration packs which, except chicken drumsticks and eggs, also include vegetable oil and sugar have not been delivered to residents.
Let us recall that ration packs were introduced in May 2021 when the administration of Ashgabat stopped selling subsidizing groceries in state-run stores and started delivering them to people’s home.
This is how the authorities partially got rid of long queues (up to several hundred people) which were formed in front of state-run stores.
