Crimea tries to create the illusion of a variety of products by filling the shelves with a large number of goods of one and the same brand.

Reminder: the Crimea’s civil blockade has been launched Sept.20. Its aim is to prevent the supply of goods from the mainland Ukraine to the peninsula. Russian occupants have already stated that Crimea’s blockade has not affected the situation in Crimea. Meanwhile, the shelves in the stores are either empty or stacked with one brand goods.

For comparison, before Russian occupation of Crimea, a large number of the most diverse goods of different brands filled the shelves of the stores.
