Two months have passed since the moment when the Crimea was annexed. “Sobering” is hitting many Crimeans already, however, it should be noted, not all. There are still those who are ready to live with an empty wallet and fridge, but also to “die in Russia.”
Meanwhile it is difficult to find a really positive side to current everyday life in the Crimea. Let’s speak of the most profane – the prices on food and goods of primary importance.
The Crimeans are lamenting the empty shelves in shops and supermarkets, the ridiculously high prices – meat for 100 UAH on average, buckwheat almost for 20 UAH, bread which has become 50% more expensive… This is Russian reality in the Crimea today.
