      Apparently, they still repay part of the debt in kind, and this is good: we have never had any dates for sale here, and now they have appeared, they are very high-quality and cheap, they disperse with a bang, everyone is happy. And that, too, is the case! )))

        I wonder where the dates weren't? In Soviet childhood and adolescence, sometimes there were no potatoes in the neighboring vegetable, and Egyptian or Syrian dates were constantly. There was no vodka, but the terrible Abu Simbel was. But it is interesting that Algeria always paid in currency, when even Gaddafi paid for part of it in oil, and ours resold it to Italy.
