Russia might be incapable of providing even its honored guests (nevermind the masses) with basic human services. Meanwhile, official sources in the USA recommend preparing for a short (variable length) winter storm.
Having a week's supply of food and water along with a few voltive candles is just the thing for dealing with the political and economic impact such chaos in Russia might have on the typical American.
