Note: the figures chosen in regards to the year are misrepresentative, as in my research, they reflect only the highest of that year. For example, the mean inflation rate for 2015 was about 15.6%, and at the end of the year it was 12.9%, and it drastically went down since then, now standing at about 3.5%. For 2012, the mean inflation rate was about 5% and it's highest was 6.6%, lowest 3.6%, but this number would only increase the following year to ~7.5% at its peak. Consider the context of these numbers and ask for a source when possible. https://tradingeconomics.com/russia/inflation-cpi
