"Усеретесь без нас!"

Under President Vladimir Putin and his predecessors, Russia has singularly failed to develop its domestic industries, and has imported ever-larger amounts of consumer goods from Europe, its top trade partner. They include Dior handbags and BMW autos, but also huge amounts of staples from toilet paper to chocolate bars.

If the European Union truly wanted to express anger at what’s happening in Crimea, it could cut off some of this trade. The last time Russia didn’t have soap or toilet paper was in Soviet days, and that precipitated the collapse of the USSR.
