No, no.

Not inflation at 1 or 2% like USA or EU!

HORRIBLE inflation like the Rouble is experiencing now, and like the Peso used to experience before Mexico joined the free capitalist West!

You know, stupid! Financial ruin!

And Russian stomachs may be the ones that are the most upset.
Just think of all the goods Russians have to miss out on thanks to the sanctions, which include dairy, meat, fish, fruit and vegetables.
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev insisted the ban will help Russian farmers who have struggled to compete with Western products, and that the country will turn to Latin America to replace the imports.
Here are some foods Russians may miss:
French Cheese:
When it comes to cheese, the French do it best. And Russia’s ban means no more creamy Brie, soft Camembert or tangy Roquefort from the south of France.
Russians can also say goodbye to Vermont and Wisconsin cheese.
Norwegian Salmon:
The ban is already hurting Norwegian salmon farmers. Shares for major, Oslo-based exporters like Marine Harvest ASA and SalMar dropped following Russia’s announcement on Wednesday, and Russia is a major importer of Norwegian seafood.
Greek Yogurt:
It’s not the first time Putin has blocked Russians from eating Greek yogurt. Russian officials banned a shipment of Chobani, which is made in the U.S., during the Winter Olympics in Sochi in February.
Now, Russians won’t even be able to get the yogurt from Greece, where the popular brand Fage is produced since products from the European Union are also affected by the sanctions.
Italian Prosciutto:
A real prosciutto panini -- at least the way the Italians do it -- might be hard to come by in Russia after Putin’s ban is implemented.
The sanctions include all meat from the European Union, so Italy won’t be able to export the ham.
Canadian Pork:
Speaking of meat, Russians also won’t be enjoying any more Canadian bacon.
That’s a bummer for Russians, but it’s also going to hurt Canada’s pork industry.
Canada Pork International, which promotes the country’s pork exports, said Russia is its third-largest market for pork, and accounted for nearly $500 million in sales in 2012, according to The Globe and Mail.
Putin has an 85% approval rating of the Russian people, who are not worried about being part of the popularity contest. The people are more concerned about the wonderful west and NATO as well as the Canadian biased Hatefilled Russophoses interfering in the politics of Ukraine than about stuffing their faces with huge amounts of food.

The Ugly Canandian Fascist -loving, biased hate-filled Russophobes keep butting their obnoxious heads into Ukraine. Too bad they don't mind their own business in Canada, where they fled after their beloved Nazis lost WWII thanks to the Russians who beat them and ran them out, so they wouldn't be punished for their collaboration and betrayal.

Canada is an itty bitty country in a large land envious of Russia, who has a big mouth because its economy is based 85 percent on the good will of the USA. And Canadian Biased, hate-filled , Nazi-loving russophobic Ukes hiding out in Canada for their collaboration with the NAIS in killing their own people.

Putin is actually saving the Russian people from consuming diseased chickens who are given growth hormones to grow them fat in three months and antibiotics producing chickens. The same thing goes for beef and pork. Chickens are not so clean as they are just dipped in water to clean them and then packaged, People can get salmonella from some of those imported foods. It will give Russians a great break of cleanliness and health by not eating those items.

They claim they need nothing from Russia but then they sure have glommed on to the Russian figure skating coaches and plenty of Russian hocky players. In fact the wonderful west and especially Canada think they are entitled to everything Russia has. But they ain't gonna get it.

the best thing Russia can do is not put their trust in the west. and continue to keep control of their own country. Russia needs a good army and a navy and plenty of nuke to insure their indepence and freedom from the greedy grasping hands of the wonderful west.
