Relationship of the army and the society, the problem of price rise, the fight with corruption, and the difficult situation in the consumer sector are the leading topics of today's press.
The newspaper Azerbaijan writes about the people’s love for the army, about the people’s unity with the national army, which the people expressed during the April battles, and about fundraising for the army, which has been accumulated in a special fund, already amounting to AZN 80 million.
“The soldier is respected only when he protects his national borders, and is not an occupier,” the author concludes deeply.
The website Azadliq.info writes about the total price increase undertaken by the government. The expert Nemat Aliyev believes it is done with the aim to fill the scarce foreign currency reserves. However, the rise in price will even more deepen the crisis and exacerbate social tensions.
Echo has published an article about the state of the economy and the challenges facing it. The fight against corruption should be one of the priorities of state policy. This will help to replenish the state treasury with impressive funds. The first step is transparency in everything. Reports are required about what the officials do and what they work with. Only in this way it will be possible to check, where public funds are spent.
Novoye Vremya also writes about the rise in price. Since the beginning of last year the price of imported goods in large chain stores has grown by an average of 40-45%. However, despite this, chain stores survive and even show a tendency to expand.
