    Try спиртовая настойка of smth or спиртовой раствор борной кислоты as the replacement.
    Meanwhile, usual soap works pretty well - just wash hands and face after returning home or elsewhere from outdoors, and close the tap not by clean hand, but with elbow or with a piece of toilet paper.

    Mix 70% Изопропиловый спирт, 2-3% Глицерин, rest clean water, pour it in an atomizer container.

    Изопропиловый спирт should be out there to 135-400 Rub. pr litre, Глицерин goes from 200-400 pr litre.
    Ozon did have masks (to "old" price), but who knows what they have i real life? other places seems to be out of stock or the price had skyrocket, but try to search in DIY stores for dust mask they can be a substitute, Leroy Merlin could be a place to search.

    You can go to hardware stores.

    They are more expensive, but I just bought 10 n95 masks for 250 rub.

    I also have military gas masks I purchased long ago, but now I wish I would have purchased the full face gas mask.

    I think the trick is to think outside the box.

    Two weeks ago I tried buying hand sanitizer and masks from aptekas, but they were all sold out except one place, and I bought the last three small bottles for 115 rub each.

    I went to fix price and they had big bottles of hand sanitizer for 55 rub. They also had ,8 rolls of 3 ply TP for 95 rub.

    Yesterday, they had the medical alcohol for 15 rub for 100 ml, I think.
