Turkey’s annual inflation rate jumped to a 24-year high of 78.62 percent in June, data showed on Monday, just above forecast, driven by the Ukraine war impact, rising commodity prices and a lira slide since a December crisis.

Month-on-month, consumer prices rose 4.95 percent, the Turkish Statistical Institute said, compared to a Reuters poll forecast of 5.38 percent. Annually, consumer price inflation was forecast to be 78.35 percent.
