Daily Mail: Russians don't feel sanctions - their stalls are full of food

Sue Reid, a journalist for the British newspaper Daily Mail, visited supermarkets in Russian Perm and, in her publication, regretted the fact that the sanctions do not affect the lives of ordinary Russians in any way. Shop windows are full of products, which cannot be said about the UK.

Are sanctions really destroying life in Russia? While UK supermarkets are rationing eggs and vegetables, shelves in a provincial Russian town are full of fresh produce. The much-lauded 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 state that Russia uses energy and fertilizer as a weapon against the West. In her opinion, Moscow is solely to blame for the shortage of vegetables and eggs in British supermarkets.

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

Sue Reed writes.

In her publication, she recalled the Western stereotype about the love of Russians for vodka. Western restrictions could not deprive the inhabitants of the Russian Federation of even this drink. People in the cities are full, their cars fill up, and prices are half that of 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 sympathetic countries such as Iran, where the climate is warmer […]The average Russian needs a warm home, food on the table, a glass of vodka, and safety on the streets. They have it all

    Daily Mail: !!!

    So what's the deal? Throw off the king, declare independence from the crown, form a new republic within Russia and grow tomatoes and cucumbers. You can even plant a pumpkin with a watermelon ... Only palm trees do not grow in the British Isles, otherwise they could grow bananas to feed their monkeys ...

    Well, there is some exaggeration about the rationing of products in England, but about prices and tariffs - they don’t even stand still in our country ...

      And you clench your teeth and don't whine... Or do you drive a Zhiguli to the market for vodka and sausage?
