Praying for you! Not your fault for sure, but it impacts everyone in some way. Hang in there. Cooler heads will prevail…they always do eventually.

Governments are irrelevant. (As it should be.)

I feel like a debtor if I had promised something but haven’t done it. I hope I haven’t broken any laws, I just let the community know that I have some strong reasons to do or not to do something.

Can’t agree with you. Poland post did a great job during the pandemic. They have reasonable prices for EU-based national post. I like this idea.

I take medication for depression, and that helps.

I don’t know much about your personal situation, but I hope you’re okay, kiriba-ru!


Sorry for the bad interpretation. I should have said that I’m completely upset, not depressed. Hope I don’t need medical care.

kiriba-ru, the world understands it is not your people’s but your government’s. I am sorry that the sanctions happening will almost surely have a negative impact on you and yours.

If it was so, I wasn’t worrying so much. The main problem is that too many people support this regime.

Interesting. A sort of “twilight bark” for sending spacers and pills and whatnot. LOL

No problem!

I'm upset about the situation, too,  and I'm on the other side of the planet.

By the way, I'm not too depressed right now, but we'll see after I watch the news.

At the moment, the price for shipping up to 350g costs $5 worldwide. This can change as my currency depreciates quickly.

kiriba-ru S2+ and S21a spacers are available in EU. PM me. A few details here

Unfortunately a minority, but a significant minority, of the people in this world are casually prepared to ruin other people’s lives, people they do not care to know or understand. We who just do our thing to make our part of the world a little better are always the victim of that.

S2+ and S21a spacers are ready for shipment.
I have no solution for delivery or money transfer. I can not say how it works at the moment, need some statistics to draw conclusions.
I think I should start with small individual orders and look how it goes. If they don’t arrive, I will be able to reship them in a different way.

Good luck with everything kiriba-ru! Hopefully things will get resolved soon.

My 1 purchase from you years ago was impeccable and I’m sure someday I’ll need your services again.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

I think Xoom.com still works for money transfers. I did send some money with it to Russia kinda recently. Almost transferred instantly into the receivers card number, but sure it requires receivers info like name, address etc. but good way if receiver doesn’t have PayPal or just doesn’t want to use that.

Yes i believe that. I'm working a deal with a guy on Etsy and he is jumping through hoops to get the product shipped to the US.

I have not listed flashlight parts on eBay for a while, I used it for machinery and measurement tools. However, yesterday eBay decided that all listing from Russia should be hidden.
Sorry I may make more grammar mistake than before because Grammarly does not work here anymore.

I’ve just checked ebay UK and I can still find your account, and also find your items you have for sale using the search. This maybe still a useable way to sell your spacers, at least for now.

I received a package from kiriba-ru with triple CU spacers – 30 for S21A and 60 for S2+.

Three things to note:
Shipping from Poland costs $7 (up to 0,5kg) for most European countries.
I can only ship on Fridays.
Payments via PayPal F&F or add 4%.

kiriba-ru S2+ and S21a spacers are available in EU. PM me. A few details here

containerfan has sold my yearly quantity in less than a month.
I have some heat sinks left, if I will be able to combine sets and deliver them abroad – I will notify you.
