It could be. I’ve not seen any difference on my end, but then again most of our products are so niche of the niche that there are few if any who does the same kind of things. More mainstream ranges may have been hit. Sergey told me back in 2014-15, when I was asking questions for a Word of Hashut interview, that the “Russian” in the name Russian Alternative apparently saw them lose a lot of customers once slices of Ukraine started to go missing. I had hoped RA’s fortunes had rebounded, because they have excellent quality and were also friendly and approachable to questions.
They deserve to thrive. This is all tragic. Sometimes I wonder if some baleful curse rests upon the entire Russian people, serving them a worse fate than they ought to have. They do not lack for brilliance, that is for sure.
