Russians do not feel the sanctions – their counters are full of food

Sue Reid, a journalist with the British newspaper Daily Mail, visited supermarkets in Russian Perm and in her publication lamented that the sanctions do not affect the lives of ordinary Russians in any way. Shop windows are full of products, which is not the case in the UK.

Are sanctions really destroying life in Russia? While British supermarkets ration eggs and vegetables, shelves in a Russian provincial town are full of fresh produce. The much-vaunted Western sanctions imposed as punishment for Putin’s aggression against Ukraine have no serious consequences.

writes a British journalist.

In her publication, Sue Reid did not forget to specify that Russia uses energy and fertilizers as a weapon against the West. According to her, Moscow is solely responsible for the shortage of vegetables and eggs in British supermarkets.

In the West, prices and inflation have soared as the Kremlin weaponizes energy by limiting supplies in response to our sanctions. Putin also refused to sell us agricultural fertilizers. Prices for this vital agricultural product have soared. In short, he attempted to destroy British agriculture by making it in many cases prohibitive to grow vegetables, fruit and salads during the cold months.

Sue Reed writes.

In her post, she recalled the Western stereotype about Russians’ love of vodka. Western restrictions could not even deprive the inhabitants of the Russian Federation of this drink. People in the cities are full, their cars are filling up and prices are half of those in Britain.

Residents of Perm and other regions of Russia have a lot of cheap food. Cheap energy in a gas-rich country means vegetables can be grown in greenhouses throughout the harsh winter. Russia can also import large quantities of fruit from friendly countries like Iran, which has a warmer climate (…) The average Russian needs a warm house, food on the table, a glass of vodka and street safety. They have everything
