In a joint project of SB World Studio, Amerpass International and the video production «Russian migration», journalists Irina Leontyeva and Igor Leonov comprehend the new reality in which everyone found themselves due to the pandemic.
Each 25-minute episode focuses on the economic crisis and the subsequent unemployment in the United States, Mexico and Canada. Foreign citizens with Russian roots tell what measures are being taken in their countries because of the pandemic: someone loses their jobs, others have to retrain as couriers.
Not all companies failed to prepare a safety cushion, and the new crisis was unpredictable. The heroes of the project explain why the assistance of the Russian state to entrepreneurs cannot be called adequate and how the US and Canadian governments help entrepreneurs.
