You probably mean Vologda? (Vologda being Russia's butter capital, and Volodya being a form of Vladimir :) )

from article about a year ago my friend´s friend wrote in a newspaper - he´s ethnologist , specialising in siberian peoples, married to yakut woman, spending lot of time every year in russia.

 

according to official statistics , 60-90% of dairy products sold in russia were made of palm oil (depending on the type of product, like cheese) -- at least was about a year ago. you can get good quality food products , but in moscow it´s 

a: from elitarian food chain ´´azbuka vkusa´´  (´´alphabet of taste´´)

b: straight from minor producers/ farmers markets

 

anyway, you pay for this . like , according to very well-off muscovite , about ´´top 10% of people in moscow can afford it´´. and he mentioned again that Vologda butter,  that the author specially asked to taste. such half-margarine or no-name brand butter would be in estonia or in europe in cheap ´´house brand´´ shelf of  some supermarket. and it cost 3-4 euros .
