Kosovo’s PM Albin Kurti declared earlier today that the rise in prices for oil and basic products is the cost we have to pay for living in a free and democratic country.

In addition, he said that the Russian aggression in Ukraine is what’s dictating prices hikes and that the government has nothing to do with it, said KosovaPress.

During a government meeting, the head of state promised rigorous auditing in order to prevent any manipulations or unfair price gouging as a result of the crisis.

“I know and I understand your concerns when it comes to these price hikes as they are the concerns all of us share – even though we are not the ones that caused this, neither our country nor our government. However, it influences all of us. 13 days ago, we joined the western world’s initiative to sanction the Russian aggression in Ukraine – and this is an unavoidable cost we all have to pay. However, this is the cost for freedom and democracy,” – said Kurti.

In addition, he said that Kosovo is greatly dependent on its imports, as a result, according to Kurti, of the negligence shown by prior administrations in terms of prioritizing and investing in domestic production.
