Shops in the self-proclaimed Lugansk People's Republic (LNR) have shifted to settlements in rubles.
Ruble price tags were put on commodities in supermarkets and small stores on Tuesday morning, an Interfax correspondent has reported. Prices have been converted by a rate of one Ukrainian hryvnia to two rubles.
Markets are still using the hryvnia and the ruble. Sellers say they will put ruble price tags on their goods soon.
Both shops and markets claim to have no inconveniences shifting to the Russian ruble.
In turn, currency exchange offices are selling the Ukrainian hryvnia for 2.6 rubles.
LNR leader Igor Plotnitsky said earlier the republic should shift to settlements in Russian rubles on September 1.
