Putin’s sanctions war created a Russian cheese industry overnight



DUBROVSKOYE, Russia — Oleg Sirota proudly holds up a wheel of Russian-made cheese with “Putin” etched into its rind.

“This is our prime block of cheese. This is the cheese for Vladimir Putin — exclusively for him,” Sirota said from his workshop in this village just outside Moscow.

The bearded cheesemaker wasn’t always a supporter of the Russian president but plans to vote for him in the election scheduled for March 18.

He credits Putin for helping to make his dreams come true.
