Anti-Russian sanctions have also created unexpected problems.

The third problem is the funniest, it is akin to the “nail problem” that Matviyenko complained about not so long ago. It turns out that special wire holders for corks, the so-called "museles" in Russia, are also a huge rarity: those that are produced do not stand up to scrutiny, they simply break when twisted, and importing high-quality ones is now impossible due to sanctions.
