    Buy Russian

    Does Russia have a “Buy from Russian owned and made products campaign”?

    Do ordinary Russians prefer to buy imported goods or local goods, and in what catergores do people prefer imports to local goods?

    То есть, если человек пытаются покупать товара завешиваюшие место изделия, то это наверное значит, что он исклучает где-нибудь а не заклучает где-нибудь? Вам этот вопрос возможно понимать?

    To some extent this is right, but there is a small but vocal group that hates buying ANYTHING from China or Mexico. Basically, they are screwed on those counts though...

    Нет, сам написал плохой пост.

    What I'm trying to say is:
    "That is, if a person tries to buy goods depending on place of manufacture, then this probably means that they are EXCLUDING a place, rather than INCLUDING a place."

    Any ideas on how to convey this?

    Таким образом, если люди пытаются покупать товары в зависимости от места изготовления, то это вероятно означает, что они ИСКЛЮЧАЮТ место, вместо того, чтобы ВКЛЮЧАТЬ.

    Но я не понимаю, что значит исключают и включают в этом контексте

    Куча людей в Новой Зеландии пытаются покупать только новозеландские товары, когда возможно.

    In Russia an appearance of this kind of things indeed exists. "Support the national producer" is an often repeated slogan. Though it's followed not as much as said.

    Потому что почти всё иностранное лучше намного! Так смысл поддерживать отечественного производителя?

    Answering the initial question, yes - many products such as honey, chocolates, sugar, usual vegetables, bread, some berries and fruits, milk, eggs, beer, vodka, wood and a long range of products made/grown on Russian soil are more popular in public meaning. And the government tries to reveal and protect the rights of local goods, with or without success.
    The goverment run the broad promotion program for Russian cars - the cheapest but often the worst cars on the Russian car market.
    There is a popular phrase as was said upper - Поддержи отечечественного производителя!

    Everyone I know - both who obviosly prefer all imported and who shows they are 'real patriots' and suppose that all Russian is all the best - actually buy mostly imported products.
    In fact, the very rare Russian products can compare with imported analogues - lots of Russian products which really deserved to be called the best in the world vanished at all. A great many of products are made by imported technologies under control of imported personal. So being made in Russia they are not Russian in real.

    I myself honestly prefer imported goods.
    Я так думаю.

    The only way to support the national producer is to pay them subsidies in order for them not to produce a lot. I'm fed up with such goods, you know. Sitting astride the oil pipe, Russia has no reason at all to promote industry. After all, whatever we invent, a kalashnikov comes out.

    Which would bring to mind a saying we have: "Don't put all your eggs in one basket." What happens if oil prices fall significantly, or even if some alternative energy form comes to market? Then you're royally screwed. Subsidies may be a lousy idea, but it's just as lousy to say that you shouldn't bother with anything besides oil...

    I haven't read other people's replies. A lot of people buy Russian because that's all they can afford.

    Well, no one here takes care of it. There is the fund based in the USA and other western countries that is planned to soften the inpact. Besides, alternative energy is something of fiction science.

    Right, but I would hardly think that presents itself as a long-term solution. It may be a nice stop-gap, but is hardly sustainable.

    Besides, alternative energy is something of fiction science.
    I'm not talking about every car having a personal nuclear reactor or the use of cold fusion, or whatever. But it does seem fairly certain, given man's ability/necessity to adapt that there WILL be another source of energy in the future besides oil. It may be better/worse and cleaner/dirtier. But it is coming.

    The same old song, Mishau. We are neither Bahrain, nor UAE.

    BTW, if you buy beer of foreign brand, do you look at the info on the package? 99% of such beer is produced in Russia, so when you buy "Karlsberg" or "Fosters" it is "Baltika", "Beck's" is "Klinskoye" and so on. You just don't have an idea. Most of food is already produced in Russia whatever brand it carries.

    It's always been true for a Russian person to judge about economy by the amount of food he/she can buy. We used to face a big lack of a lot of good food in the Soviet times. Just remember, 4 sorts of beer only and all the same any Czechic sort of beer was better, in great deficit though. Then few sorts of grey boiled sausage with pieces of toilet paper inside, patties with cat meat instead of beef and mongrel in restaraunts instead of lamb, rotten vegs in greengrocery that you could not select and, particularely at the end of the Soviet era, bread that had some barmy taste. I could recall canteens with greasy plates and cockroaches on tables and also hotels with bugs in beds and cold rooms.

    A fellow comes up to a long line of queuing people:
    - What are they selling there?
    - They say Tolstoy or so.
    - And is it better than Adidas?
    - I don't know, I'm taking only three bottles to try.
