As an aside, this reviewer doesn't know Russian. "Dedy" means "grandfathers."

This stuff was all happening in the Soviet Union, except that alcohol was much more expensive. Average monthly wage could buy 35 bottles of vodka in 1970, vs. 135 today. Being an alcoholic in the USSR was hard.

Scotland has the same male mortality dynamics, incidentally, and for the same reason. I would guess Ireland isn't far off. (Wendy? Jason?)

Lyubo, bratsy, lyubo, lyubo, bratsy, zhit!
