Using data from the World Bank and the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service, I examine the effects the US and the EU sanctions, and Russian countersanctions have had on the domestic consumption of various Russian dairy products. I find that the consumption of all the dairy products pre- versus post-sanctions is the same irrespective of the dairy product type considered (all dairy, fluid milk, nonfat milk, dry whole milk powder, butter, or cheese). I also find that exports (imports) negatively (positively) influenced dairy consumption for all dairy products besides for fluid milk. Lastly, dairy consumption decreased for the population aged 15-64 and greater than 65 except for cheese and dry whole milk powder, as consumption for those two only decreased for the population aged 65 and older.
