Over 1,000 Companies Have Curtailed Operations in Russia--But Some Remain

Reuters says [link:https://www.reuters.com/markets/europe/top-brands-pull-out-russia-their-goods-remain-easy-find-2023-02-22/|

MOSCOW, Feb 22 (Reuters) - Trucks carrying Coca Cola roll across the border into Russia, tourists return from abroad laden with Zara's latest designs, and local online marketplaces snap up IKEA's furniture stocks. Western brands may have left the country, but their goods haven't.
Despite European, North American and Japanese companies exiting Russia over its actions in Ukraine, the impact on Russian consumers is minimal, although delivery times can be longer and some goods more expensive.


So now Yale has done extensive research to find out who is still doing business with Russia.
The latest update done this month is pretty interesting.

The link here is the YALE follow up.



This article from the NYT was written by the Yale researchers LAST spring.

Well I waited a week too long to plant my Sugar snap peas here in zone 8a

The weather has been so erratic here in Ft Worth!
3 solid days of around 19* (below freezing) and today it is at least 82*today. We have had wind gusts up to 50 miles an hr at least once a week this spring, too. We did have 2Ē of some much needed rain last week, so thatís something.

Went ahead and started what I can; itís going to be another hot dry summer here. Not sure our Zone is still 8a anymore. More like 7b now.
