According to Rosstat, the Russians began to buy less alcoholic beverages and tobacco.

Food sales began to decline in May (by 0.3 percent). The decrease was the first in several years: since 2009, the monthly dynamics of the Russian retail sector has been positive. Negative figures were recorded in December 2009.

As a result, in the second quarter of 2014, food retail turnover fell by 0.1 percent - to 2 trillion 942.3 billion rubles.

In the first six months of the year, sales of food products increased by 0.5 percent, to 5 trillion 647.9 billion rubles.
