food has triple
Experts are now saying Russia will hit its 8% food inflation ceiling by the end of 2015, well above the inflation target of 4.5% set by Russia's Central Bank for next year, Filatova says. The country has seen at least two-consecutive weeks of 0.1% consumer price increases, Filatova says. Meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, nuts and dairy products were banned from the U.S., E.U., Norway, Canada and Australia.

In areas of NW of Luhansk, Debaltseve (link town between DPR and LPR), and Mariupol a big concentration of Junta machinery is taking place.
Donetsk is still being shelled everyday.

Geez, what comes across is its the little people on the ground which suffer, when you no longer have choice you no longer have freedom, No BMW, No Gucci but yeah good luck convincing the people on the ground they can enjoy something more cost effective and homemade lol Now Russia has dipped into recession and food has tripled! People won't faint on the streets like you say if they don't have these things, but it won't make you popular as a Government.
Doesn't make life better for the Russian people, or any of us.
