There are people doing worse, and also those doing better.

Personally, me and my family are doing better, because of my line of work. During economic troubles and uncertainty in Russia is when commercial interests and territories usually get redivided, some old players get removed and new ones come in, and, because business and organized crime are, admittedly, intertwined here, this happens, often enough, in a violent and deadly manner, through targeted murders and assassinations, frankly


As such, the market for armored vehicles, armed bodyguards, and other personal security arrangements only grows around this time, the rich want and need to protect themselves and their families



This is very good, for my firm

People getting shot or blown up in their cars over money... Is not so good. It is sad. But, that is Russia.
