I'm glad that the sanctions are biting hard on Russia, hopefully this will teach them a strong lesson to mind their own business!
They're biting hard! I linked to the 'Inside Russia' YouTube account above, he seems to be telling it close to as it is, though his 'streams' ramble a bit.
I have a friend (actually several more than one) but this one specifically, who is citizen in Australia and married to a Belarusian man. She had just managed in a small number of weeks before the special military operation in
invasion of Ukraine to gain her parents the subclass 143 Visa - they paid upwards of AUD50k. They were going through the process of winding up affairs in Russia, liquidating assets, packing, complying with Covid and other medical requirements, the usual activities you might need to undertake when permanently moving a great part of the World away.
When Putin moved into Russia it took only a week for the Australian government to advise that my friend's parent's Visa had been 'suspended' and at this point, she doesn't know if she will ever see her parents again - they may never see their grandchildren.
Food like flour goes up sometimes 10-50% everyday, imported foods (if you're Russian and like western European cheeses for example) forget it, fresh fruit is almost out of the question (Russia grows probably no bananas, and whilst they have citrus, it's not a lot).
Her parents have been selling off or throwing out things, when you're in your 70s or 80s how many clothes and shoes do you need to transport out to Australia? Australia has clothing and shoe stores after all - except now Russia nearly doesn't - the stores they still have, have a lot less in them and they're EXPENSIVE.
Russia doesn't really have unemployment benefits, if you worked for a western company (Ikea, Maccas, Burger King, Subway, H&M, Zara, pretty much all the car/motorbike/truck manufacturers, Boeing/Airbus, the tech companies Apple/Microsoft/Cisco, Maersk) not only do you no longer have a job, you have no incoming money - there's a LOT of people working in some of those businesses. If you made your money selling in western food, clothing or a Toyota/Mazda/etc dealership, forget it. When the sanctions started, even if the business stayed open, you had exactly what stock was in the country to sell (tech products and cars have been constrained for two years already) and that's it.
The public will get restless at their leaders soon, forget having control in Ukraine, Putin might not even have control in Russia.
