    and with that 1 million ruble deposit in the bank,i believe that. Russians buy more tangible things as soon as they have extra money. might that be a piece of land, a dacha, an apartment. or a new big SUV. or they keep it STILL in the -bank - under the bed...
    But here is the deal.

    It's called transportation. And as things now stand, the ships are not moving. Ports aren't open. So if the manifest has shown the ship had been to China, it's really stuck. It has goods, can't unload them or pick up new goods from that country. Without goods, the shops can't sell stuff, etc. There are things still in warehouses, but those are dwindling. Furthermore, everything will now have to be decontaminated. So, global trade is locked up, and it will take a very long time to untangle this knot.

    Same story with train. Truck, etc. Plus a lot of the goods will have to be destroyed cuz of possible virus. And bills need to be paid and and and.

    We are on the final page of the old world n can start to see the new world coming into focus. It's going to be dark.

    Everything is imported at some level of the added-value stage.

    Cept maybe military equipment.

    Or maybe beets and beet sugar and potatoes n tomatoes n meat/chicken/grains.
