Shortly. Putin starts sanctions against 'the countries who started sanctions against Russia'. Import of agricultural goods, fruits and vegetables and some raw materials from EU/USA will be stopped.

Also Russia thinks on a possibility to close Russian sky for foreign planes, resulting in a huge increasing of a way from Europe to China/Asia. 

What do you think about it?

I approve, russia should feel free to shoot itself in the foot as much as it wants



all that is requested of russia is stop considering neighbouring countries as its' backyard






Somehow it seems that EU needs Russian oil and gas more than Russia needs European apples and pears.

Yeah. Don't forget American chicken and Australian lamb/beef. Btw beef will be bought to Russia from Brasil now, with chickens I think we can produce enough by ourselves.
Also Russian farmers are happy - for the first time in a long time producers/retailers coming to them buying their apples. Wohoo!

I consider the whole situation silly and just wish it would end and we could get back to normal again.

You can't turn the beef mince back into an alive cow. West started the Ukraine shit turning down Yanucovich literally illegal and for nothing. Then those stupid sanctions - now they get a feedback. Hopefully the situation will normalize more or less, but it will never be the same as 1 year ago.

Maybe not, but I can still hope for that

Even if it doesn't get quite back to how it was last year it could still be a lot better than it is now, why can't everyone just get along?
