Crimean winery hopes Russia will lend a hand

This 136-year-old winery was once part of the Russian Empire. They started out making bubbly to compete with fine French Champagnes. But after Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine, the producers now face a new task. Gaining recognition in Russia, now that their market is no longer a Ukrainian one.

I assume that now our factory will be getting more attention. Before our factory was a property of Ukraine, it was a state-owned factory, and they didn't help us, financially I mean.
