A recent poll in Britain found that public support for sanctions against Russia is falling as fuel and prices rise.
The proportion of people willing to accept higher fuel prices as a result of western sanctions against Russia fell 14 percentage points to 36% from 50% in March, according to a survey conducted for the Telegraph by consultancy Redfield & Wilton Strategies.
Global energy and fuel prices have soared since the start of the year and remain high because of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine and uncertainty over Russian supplies.
The survey also found that 54% of people believe their own financial situation has worsened in the past year, up 12 percentage points from 42% two months ago. Sixty-two percent think things will get worse in the year ahead. Less than a third of respondents said they had received a pay rise to keep up with inflation, with two-thirds of those saying it was not enough to keep up with rising living costs.
The figures suggest that public concern about the conflict with Ukraine is now likely to be overtaken by financial worries.
Separately, the UK's consumer price index rose 7 percent this month from a year earlier, the highest since March 1992, according to figures released recently by the Office for National Statistics. In addition, a separate report released a few days ago by the Centre for Economics and Business Research said that real household disposable income in the UK will fall by 3% in 2022, equivalent to a loss of £2,320 per household, which would lead to the biggest drop in living standards since the 1950s. That is mainly because wages aren't keeping up with rising energy and fuel costs.
The prices of other commodities like the calcium stearate are also expected to be influenced.

Technical Parameter of Calcium Stearate Powder:
|Product Name||Short Name||Melting Point||Ca Content||Particle Size||Appearance|
|Calcium Stearate Powder||N/A||140-158℃||6.5±0.6%||325 mesh, 200 mesh||white powder|
Calcium Stearate Uses:
Calcium stearate in food: Ca stearate can be used as anti-caking agent, release agent, lubricant, adhesive, emulsifier and thickener in food with the European food additive number E470a.
Calcium stearate powder can improve the coagulation speed in rigid plastic products, and can also be used for non-toxic soft films such as food packaging and medical equipment. It also has the effect of stabilizer and has good long-term stability.
Calcium stearate uses in pvc: Ca stearate is used as a stabilizer and lubricant in polyethylene and polyvinyl chloride, and as a halogen absorber in polyethylene and polypropylene, which can eliminate the adverse effects of the catalyst remaining in the resin on the color and stability of the resin.
Calcium stearate powder is used to improve the heat resistance of plastics, improve the initial coloring property and air permeability of weather resistance, and will replace the toxic stabilizer with the same properties.
Is calcium stearate safe to eat?
Calcium stearate has almost no side effects as a food additive. It is generally considered to be safe (GRAS) in food, and there are no other restrictions except for the current good production practices of FDA. It can be used as flavoring agent and auxiliary agent, lubricant and release agent, stabilizer and thickener.
Is calcium stearate vegan?
Yes, most used calcium stearate today in food products is vegetable calcium stearate. It is considered vegan because the manufacturing process does not use animal substances or products of animal origin.
But stearic acid can also be produced from animal fats and oils, so vegetarians should avoid this source.

Calcium Stearate Powder Health & Safety Information
With Russia taking the lead on Poland and Bulgaria at the end of last month, there appears to be a growing sense of compromise within the EU over whether to accept Moscow's proposed rouble settlement order.
Italy's prime minister said recently that European companies would be able to buy gas in roubles without violating sanctions. This apparently ignores the guidance of hardliners in the EU to "fight to the end".
For weeks, European companies have been trying to find ways to meet Russia's payment demands for the rouble while maintaining vital gas supplies without violating sanctions against Moscow.
Late last month, European Commission President Von der Leyen said operating under the mechanism would violate sanctions and asked European companies not to bow to Russian demands. However, the EU has yet to issue more rigorous written guidelines on how companies should pay Gazprom.
The Italian prime minister said recently, "There is no official announcement from the European Union about what ruble settlement means for sanctions violations, and no one has said whether ruble payments violate sanctions or not. It's a grey area."
"In fact, most gas importers are already opening rouble accounts for deals with Gazprom,"
He also used German companies as a shield. He said Germany's largest gas importer had already paid in rubles. "In fact, we saw evidence yesterday that the largest gas importer in Germany has already paid in rubles."
