Meanwhile, Russia was faced with economic crisis. Rouble devalued, large numbers of foreign labor quitting and domestic output fell. Import substitution effect was shown.

To some extent, the reduction of quantity of workers directly resulted in labor decreasing and output falling in labor-intensive industry such as textile industry. Added with cheap and fine Chinese textile products, import substitution effect is formed on Russian market.
