This is the chance for local manufacturers to grab 

Let us capitulate is on this and produce items locally

During my time in Russia, I was having industrial training during the first year in a Factory in Moscow called Borets where large compressors were built with local materials. Body and parts were cast machined and assembled .in the same factory there were other productions of items such as carburetor for an Indigenous Russian car, electric kettle, etc for local consumption. This is how Russians managed the economy at that time.

I suggest that all-aluminum kitchen utensils are to be replaced with earthenware produced by locals.

Promote more biogasses for cooking.various manufacturers should have a product line other than the main product 

The wildest idea is to collect illicit brewing barrels taken over by police and exercise in large tanks in local distillery companies and make  ethyl alcohol for disinfection 

Recycle plastics can be used to  make building materials such as windows and doors 

There are many such products which can be replaced with local manufacture
