Still, turning Russia into a ringed-off economic fortress isn't at the heart of Glazyev's prescriptions. Faced with a souring climate abroad, the country should promote import substitution and policies aimed at reversing the brain drain that's sapped Russia's scientific prowess.

What does ringed-off mean?

1 Answer 1


Ring-off here means to isolate something. (alt. insulate, remove (from the world), separate, disconnect, et al.)

  • A similar term is roped-off.
