The Russians have already begun stockpiling imported drugs, and since last week there has been a demand for drugs for chronic diseases. But experts are sure that interruptions in the supply of medicines can not be expected.
Restaurateurs in Russia faced another problem. As Kommersant writes, establishments had to redraw the menu, which includes imported products.

The winners, he said, will be those who ignore the slogans of foreign politicians. It will also support those Russians who work in such companies.
“We still consider foreign businesses as potential partners”, – the prime minister said, adding that many companies produce a product that is in demand both in Russia and abroad, and they have invested a lot of effort in Russian production.

It is worth noting that, according to the FOM, the level of trust in Putin in Russia has increased from 60% to 71% over the past week.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that the day before, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin announced a ban on the withdrawal of foreign business from Russian assets.
Analysts recalled the six rules of conduct during hyperinflation.
Financial expert Nikita Demin, in an interview with the media, listed the ways he knows how to save money despite inflation.
As he told “Channel Five”, if there is enough money to invest in real estate , then you should do it now.
For those Russians who could not save enough, but still have extra money, they can spend it on goods whose price will increase over time.
As an example, he named non-perishable food, household appliances and cars.
“These goods will rise in price,” Demin explained.
At the same time, Russian experts explained whether it is worth buying food in advance and taking loans in case of hyperinflation.
Their advice appeared in the InvestFuture telegram channel.
In their opinion, if the rise in prices reaches high levels, the goods produced by local producers will grow the least in price. Analysts point out that the authorities have announced that prices for socially important goods will be supported.
For the rest, experts advise adhering to six principles.

The European Union also banned the sale of aircraft, spare parts and equipment to Russia, the provision of insurance services and technical support for civil aircraft of the Russian Federation.
All aircraft that Russia received from Europe on lease under leasing must be returned within a month.
