    . And if you want to stay because you've "endured" 1992, that's cool too. [/QUOTE]

    I have no desire or wish to leave. not before, now or later. and one thing i know from my 50 years as Chef. nothing is eaten as hot in the restaurant as it comes onto the plate in the kitchen.

    In it's own right an interesting experiment. https://www.zdnet.com/article/russia...-planned-test/

    I do not think they will succeed to close the internet (access to sites outside Russia) 100%, there is build so much redundant into the infrastructure that I think it will not work, but lest see.

    Secondly, there is other ways to access the internet than through the ISP's, they cost some money but they are there.

    And we will survive without the internet or just a "reduced access" version, or a Russia sites only version. You may have to use MIR for bank card.

    Those expats that are here working for a foreign company will still work in this way, even without internet, if there is money to make for the company.

    All makes perfect sense to me - this is all about testing the resilience of the Rodina's infrastructure which should only be considered as sensible contingency planning during these turbulent times.

    if there is money to make for the company.[/QUOTE]

    but even more, if they can make money for themselves. and most probably much more they will ever be able to make back home. we have a very old proverb in Austria and Germany, - wer meckert der kauft- ( he who complains still will buy). holds true now more the never!
