A hapless trader decided to make money out of the energy blockade and related panic, having raised the price for his goods unreasonably. Although the candles were in high demand, the buyers were very dissatisfied with their cost: RUB 75 (about UAH 30) per piece. 

Two drunken men decided to settle the matter of pricing dramatically. They picked the speculator up under his arms and took him to an undisclosed location, allowing the eyewitnesses to take away all his goods for free.
