Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
it's a useful one to compare, except that Russia wasn't an import-dependent economy. Also, you had  population who were somewhat used to shortages and had many work arounds to cope.

Wheras we've been the 5th/6th richest economy in the world for quite a while, most of us are somewhat accustomed to live amidst plenty. Shortages are gonna be a shock, scapegoats will be sought and I hope Boris Johnston is high on that list.
