In what years in the USSR were the products on coupons?
products on coupons were with 1991goda! coupons were for certain products, for each person there was a certain rate of products!
In Russia, too, were coupons. In my city the last food stamps were issued in June 1996 year. I myself carried them around the apartments. In Soviet times, I remember that the first coupons were given for butter in 1983. (according to 200 grams per capita), and in 1984. - for meat. The rest I really do not remember.
At the end of 8-x, the beginning of 90-x was a coupon system. In the shops there was absolutely nothing. Empty counters were slightly covered with a laurel, salt and something else practically inedible. The rest of all absolutely products were by coupons, and not only food, but also other goods needed in everyday life. Until now, my husband keeps coupons for tobacco products, butter, sugar, powder. Here such were approximately:
All that was not foreseen was a quota system quot; thrown into the sale of thequot; and you could buy something only by defending huge queues. But not everyone had the time and energy to push for days on end in queues and the ticket system helped people to starve not hungry. My family survived only thanks to these coupons, a garden and the ability to invent something from nothing. Therefore, I do not want a return to those terrible times.
In the 1991 year, a coupon system was introduced, coupons were given by coupons: cigarettes and cigarettes, sugar, meat, chicken legs, for pregnant women-the liver (I was in the position), tea, butter, I went only to work in the dining room and for workers we were sold for 2 kg per hand per week, meat products, so I gave my coupons to my mom
The distribution of goods by coupons in the USSR was hidden and open. The hidden distribution always existed, the lack of goods forced trading organizations to determine the limits of the quantity of goods, often buyers determined the norms for the release of goods. Therefore, in shops it was often possible to hear phrases that, for example, one person can not give more than one kilogram of meat. During the years of perestroika, the authorities legalized coupons, later they simply raised prices.
