On A Lighter But Still Serious Note...

 ... I am always serious with anything concerning food. Jackson Hinkle goes to KFC in Russia. 

OK, let me go on a record here: be those times when McDonald's was still in Russia or now, when Vkusno i Tochka took its place, Russian fast food fries have never been better than the ones in the US Macs. I don't know what's the deal with it. Sandwiches themselves? Sure, Big Mack in Russia was actually better than in the US, but not fries. But Russians, for some reason, do love KFC better. Yeah, try to get them out of Russia. In related news, as usual journo BSers have been debunked in less than 48 hours. 

Korean automakers Kia and Hyundai are not going to leave the Russian market. This was stated by official representatives of companies in Russia to Izvestia. They added that the work of dealerships and service areas continues as normal, and the maintenance of cars and the fulfillment of warranty obligations goes according to the regulations. Earlier, the Telegram channel Mash wrote about the closure of Kia and Hyundai in Russia. According to him, manufacturers began to sell the remains of cars from Russian warehouses with a margin of one million rubles to fill the vacant places with Chinese cars. It was noted that some Hyundai stores have already changed their signage to BAIC. Journalists also reported on the mass dismissal of employees from former manufacturers' salons. At the same time, it was noted that the company was going to continue servicing Korean models, but at an inflated price.

So, here is from the Navalny's type of people. They should apply for work at CNN or WSJ or something--they qualify.  

Back to food, yes, you can get hash browns in Russia too, but it is not the same. And, of course, I still didn't have the chance to find in Russia chicken fried steak. People say they serve them somewhere. Maybe next time, hopefully. Meanwhile, here is another video from rural Russia by an American. 

The only thing which is not entirely correct is that the stream of Germans to Russia is rather significant. Plus, this type of chicken is not the mainstay of Russian meals. Generally, the food price growth was rather moderate.
