In addition to energy shortages, the European Union is facing soaring bread prices. Household food bills around the globe have been rising dramatically in recent months, as runaway inflation keeps propelling the prices for important staple foods much higher.
The cost of bread has risen 18% to its highest price ever. The creation of fiat currency is obviously the main culprit, however, the mainstream media and ruling class will continue to pretend it’s all Russia’s fault for “invading” Ukraine. In August, the price of bread in the bloc was on average 18% higher compared to the same period a year ago. This is according to data released by the EU’s statistical office Eurostat on Monday.
“This is a huge increase compared with August 2021, when the price of bread was on average 3% higher than in August 2020,” Eurostat said according to a report by RT. The highest price increases were recorded in Hungary, where they soared by a whopping 66%. Bread prices in Lithuania saw a surge of 33%, while in Estonia and Slovakia they grew by 32%.
Monthly data also showed a considerable increase in headline inflation, fluctuating from 3% to 10 %, according to Eurostat. The agency attributes rising bread prices to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine (even though this started before the “invasion”), stressing that both nations “have been major exporters of grains, wheat, maize, oilseeds (particularly sunflowers) and fertilizers.”
With all of this going on in the EU, the state of Estonia has also concocted plans to seize guns from Russians. Nationals of Russia or Belarus living in Estonia who own firearms will be given a deadline to surrender them voluntarily, or have them seized by police as security threats, Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas said on Monday.
There are only 629 people who will be affected by this change, Kallas was told during an interview, but Estonia insists on foolishly attempting to go through with it. “In any case, we will send this draft law to the Riigikogu during the current government’s term. This has already been agreed upon, and a deadline has been set. We will definitely give time for people to voluntarily hand over their weapons, and after this deadline expires it will be the police’s turn,” she said, according to the outlet Postimees.
The police are the ones that will be coming to take your guns when that time comes in this country too. Remember, they are agents of the state and will do its bidding and have proven that time and time again. Prepare and wake up. These are signs of the times and things will not get easier. Make sure you’re ready and on the right side of history.
