I've been there a few times, and it really is bad. In Moscow, they have kiosks along the street that sell beer. There are bars everywhere, selling a million different kinds of vodka, and it was very inexpensive. People are drunk everywhere. I rode the subway a lot -- it is the most incredibly beautiful system I've ever seen in my life; each stop is different, and they were all like museums -- and a good percentage of the people were barely-standing-up drunk. It is everywhere. I didn't notice it quite so much in St Petersburg, but I didn't venture off the beaten path quite as much there.

Life expectancy of Russian men is 64. But a quarter die before 55, compared with 5% in the UK and 10% in the US. The main reason is vodka. Heroin is another major cause.

“The main reason for the extraordinary difference in premature death between Western and Eastern Europe is alcohol,” said an author of the studies, Richard Peto, a professor of epidemiology at the University of Oxford. “Russians are drinking spirits dangerously. Typically, Russian men drink their vodka neat. They also tend to drink until they are drunk, and then continue drinking.'
A Russian male has a 1-in-4 chance of dying before he turns 55 years old, compared with a 1-in-11 chance for American men. Blame the vodka and cigarettes.

I spend a few weeks in Russia every year. Moscow, like any other GaWC Alpha city, has its drunks who congregate mainly around train stations and in large plazas. Eight to ten years ago, drunks were everywhere you turned. Passed out on the street, sidewalk, benches, subway cars, anywhere. That changed. For the past few years, I have witnessed fewer public drunks that every before. I have been visiting Moscow since 1986.

Drunks on long distance trains used to be very common. I have not seen one in four years. The decline in drinking and smoking are part of Putin's crackdown on unhealthy behaviors. I live in SoCal, and smoking is permissible more here than in today's Russia. Vodka and beer -- mainstays of Russian social life -- are sold in fewer places than before, and while cheap by our standards, are expensive to Russians. As a major city, Moscow experiences urbanites flouting the laws and cops and other people generally ignoring them. But in smaller cities, public drunkenness is really rare. In somebody's home, fine. But not in public. Regular people, cops, security guards all will admonish you if you violate the new directives from Putin.

I wonder what perspective Putin takes on this obvious social dilemma. Does it work that the masses are anesthetizing themselves into an early grave, or does this somehow motivate him to re-charge his country by aggressively cracking down hard on others- trying to appropriate land, resources, $$$ that his own nation cannot produce.

Are the Russians still hooked on crocodil?

I suspect they're doing the only thing they can do, restricting sales. Medical care is poor in Russia and I'm sure mental health care is either looked down upon (foreign concept initiated by Jews) or prohibitively expensive for the average Ivan.

AA was banned in the USSR until Glasnost when Gorbachev was extremely concerned about their ridiculous rates of alcoholism. I think there was some restriction of sale back then, too, but of course that never works for a hardcore alcoholic who is intent on drinking. Around this same time I read of the craziest method of obtaining some precious drops of alcohol: placing a hunk of shoe polish on bread and setting it in the sun so the alcohol would seep out into the bread. Bottoms up!

They kept ordering food which they didn't touch. But they must have plowed through 15 bottles of champagne. One of them kept slipping under the table only to have the Maitre'd come over and prop him back up. The restaurant staff tolerated all of their shit for some reason but the worst was when I went to the bathroom after two of them had been in there for like 15 minutes.

There was a used needle, blood and wadded up paper towels all over the floor.

So what do these people do, drink until they pass out wherever they fall every day? How do they work or accomplish anything? I’ve heard their GDP is low. This must be why.

How do all their kids not walk in front of a speeding car or set themselves n fire?

On one of these threads I saw a toddler in a stroller drinking a bottle of vodka with the parents passed out beside him. He was probably hungry for food or milk and strapped in so he couldn’t get any. Mommy and daddy drink this and I’m thirsty and this is all I can reach. They must not have Child Protective Services in Russia.

And why are their teeth so rotted so young? Does vodka do that? There’s an advertisement for beer.

And these are the people that want to take over the U.S.? What would they do if they had it? Drink in the middle of the street until an Uber ran them over on the 405 at rush hour? I don’t be think they can make it worse here than it is there. It’s the ninth circle of hell there.

That’s why I don’t understand the point of trying to take over all these foreign countries. Wrecking the rest of the world won’t fix Russia.

Trying to dominate the rest of the world, regardless of the outcome, is a distraction that makes the Russian people think they are as great as they once were militarily, culturally, economically or otherwise. It's propaganda for those inside, not the rest of the world. It removes the focus from the numerous internal problems including the widespread corruption that has decimated Russia's economy and made Putin and his cronies the riches men in the world. Sanctions aren't the reason Russia's economy is in the toilet and languishes right along with Australia's despite having enormous land mass, natural resources, and human capital to move an economy forward. Except they can't because the rich people have hidden Russian money all over the world, laundered with the help of those like Trump, rather than kick-starting and promoting the motherland's economy with all of that stolen loot.

Putin knows that he has to keep enough of the right kind of people happy in order to keep power. He lets the security services and gangsters operate, and has allowed a small group of oligarchs and 'middle class' prosper so they will look the other way when he kills the journalists and artists who question his power. This gives the illusion of some freedoms of travel and business that really don't exist.

I went to Russia in 2016. I took a train across the country. Moscow and St Petersburg were amazing. The first woman I met there was a lesbian (funnily enough the first woman I met in China was also a lesbian!) and took me around Moscow sight seeing. They are aware of their reality. A man selling t shirts joked to me about Putin. They know what's up, but what can they do about it? They are ruled by a new mafia. You shut up and get on with life.

I didn't see a lot of drunks passed out or anything like that. The people in the cities are very well groomed, well put together but very stoic.

In fact I had a beer at the hotel by myself while writing in my journal and it was the cause of great concern. I kind of wish someone HAD drunk with me.

I don’t know what the government can do at this point. Everybody over twelve would have the d.t.s if they cut off the booze for a few days. Russians drink perfume, cough syrup, antifreeze...what the hell excuse do they have for drinking poison? “Life is hell”? “It’s cold, so I guess I’ll drink mouthwash”? They must all die of liver failure.

I don’t know what Putin’s attitude is now, but a few years ago I read an interview with Putin where he was in complete denial and refusing to even acknowledge how many alcoholics there were.

Why do people that are that drunk even try to go outside? These people are like heroin addicts, they don’t even know what they’re doing. Why would you care about walking a baby when you can barely stay upright?

I wonder if the husband dragged mom and baby out because the drunken mother doesn’t cook or clean and he was trying to get the baby some fresh air away from all the vomit and dirty dishes. He was practically dragging her down the street. Maybe that’s the only way he could make her stop drinking for five minutes. That baby has to have FAS.

It’s what they don’t show you that’s frightening. Filthy house, unchanged diaper, stove burning with mom passed out on the floor. Kids drinking vodka they find on the floor and dying of alcohol poisoning or drinking bleach or Lysol, or setting themselves on fire. After all the stories about adopted Russian FAS kids raping their new siblings in adoptive homes, or repeatedly setting fires or stabbing people (and that’s in stable American homes), what do those kids do in homes like this? Every generation is going to be more brain damaged and violent.

The truth is probably a high death rate from neglected kids getting themselves killed, and entire families dying from house fires from lit cigarettes when somebody passes out on the floor, or car accidents, plus drunks dying of exposure outside, and they just cover it up. The cops must go out winter mornings and just shovel up the bodies. And it’s so normal to them they don’t even know anything’s wrong. The kids are probably given vodka in their cribs to shut them up.

It's hard to make a dysfunctional culture functional. Russia has never been functional. The Soviet Union collapsed, but Russians seem to be unable to deal with liberty productively. They don't trust it. On some level, the majority want to be told what to do.

It’s like a whole country full of people are simultaneously being poisoned while committing suicide.

I realize these people drink a lot, but any possibility they add additives to Russian vodka to make it more poisonous? The rotted teeth in such young people seems odd. Especially front teeth. Is that from vomiting or is vodka corrosive?

Also the fact that a lot of these hard drinkers are skinny as rails. Do they eat? Can they get enough to eat after they’ve spent all their money on vodka?

I wouldn’t put it past Putin to put some addictive substance in Russian vodka that hooks people. The fact that they’re drinking perfume and shooting krokodil suggests an extreme addiction and looking for substitutes. A certain portion of any population doesn’t have the addiction gene. So this huge number of severe alcoholics isn’t necessarily explained by only the alcoholic culture.

Or is blacking out every day an acceptable way to forget how shitty your life is? That’s pretty shitty.

I wonder how many of those women passed out all over end up raped.

Somehow I have a feeling all these people don’t get a cushy rehabs or liver transplants either. So, they feel nauseated and sick every day since they were young children. How do they finish school when they’re all drinking all day, every day since they were schoolkids? Or does anyone care, since the teachers are drunk too, probably passed out at their desks?

Was reading up on alcoholism in Russia. Only Lenin and Gorbachev ever tried to do anything about it. All the other rulers, including Putin, make money off of it. They keep alcohol cheap so the Russians are too drunk to focus and actually do something about their fucked-up country.

Of course, at this point, the Russians are doing so badly that birth rates are down, people are dying young and the economy is in the sewer. Like fuck-ups everywhere, they want to drag down everyone else with them--those troll farms, after all, are full of people willing to do what they can to other people's open elections--after all, they don't have them themselves, why should anyone else?

The demographic impact of alcoholism in Russia is shocking. From Wikipedia:

A study by Russian, British and French researchers published in The Lancet scrutinized deaths between 1990 and 2001 of residents of three Siberian industrial towns with typical mortality rates and determined that 52% of deaths of people between the ages of 15 and 54 were the result of alcohol abuse. Lead researcher Professor David Zaridze estimated that the increase in alcohol consumption since 1987 has caused an additional three million deaths nationwide.
In 2007, Gennadi Onishenko, the country's chief public health official, voiced his concern over the nearly threefold rise in alcohol consumption over the past 16 years; one in eight deaths was attributed to alcohol-related diseases, playing a major role in Russia's population decline. Men are particularly hit hard: according to a U.N. National Human Development Report, Russian males born in 2006 had a life expectancy of just over 60 years, or 17 years fewer than western Europeans, while Russian females could expect to live 13 years longer than their male counterparts.

The behavior of that child at R282 horrifies me. He’s too drunk to stand up so he ends up pissing on his hands and knees. Then drags himself through his own piss on his knees.

Judging by the huge amount of piss, which is probably pure 100 proof vodka, at his weight how is he alive? That kid is a lightweight. It makes you wonder if a kid that size can become brain damaged from alcohol poisoning. Are they trying to kill him? And why is it so important for the adults there to make an alcoholic out of a young child? It’s as if there is a deadline. You must be an out of control alcoholic that pisses all over himself by age twelve or...what? They act like they can’t let him go until he is destroyed like they are. His mother is probably passed out drunk in the middle of the street with her dress over her head and a line of men pissing on her and laughing.

That doesn’t look recreational, it looks like they think it’s really important to ruin his life as soon as possible. So why does EVERY Russian have to become a used up drunk at the earliest possible moment? Is there a quota? Does the government make it mandatory to destroy yourself as soon as you possibly can?

Russia looks like Dante’s Inferno. No wonder they want to ruin all the other countries too.

Unlike Sochi, where things events were within a contained area and better controlled, the tournament will have venues all over Russia. I'm sure they'll do round ups of natives who are known for drunken disorderlies, but it's so prevalent that it's like pulling up a weed only to have several others pop up. You can't jail 20-30% of the male population. Also, Russia has a huge problem with organized hooliganism surrounding soccer teams. There are numerous videos on Youtube of organized fights fueled by alcohol. They're sort of the Russian version of flash mobs. And they're racist as hell.

I feel sorry for the kids in that country. It seems Russians can't manage to take care of their own kids.

Russia has over twice the number of kids that end up in orphanages than the USA, with half the population. And these orphanages have abominable conditions:

There have been reports over the years that the conditions in the orphanages are not providing proper mental and physical care. Researchers have stated that children 3 and under lose one IQ point for every month spent inside. Children adopted from Russia are also more likely than any other country to have fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. Doctors visiting some of these institutions have even reported seeing toddlers sitting alone, rocking back and forth, staring blankly, or even banging their heads against walls. Children are often not provided with proper nutrition and are not given quality living and sleeping conditions.

If you ever want to read an eye-opening book, read The Russians by Hedrick Smith. He wrote it in the eighties but he goes into great detail about how Russia was a failing country. Their whole economy was geared toward the military. He said they would build 20 tanks and 19 of them had to be scrapped because the workmanship was so bad that they didn't work. He wrote it in the early eighties before Russia actually fell. Fascinating book.

My brother and his wife adopted a Russian baby from an orphanage back when that was still a thing in the early ‘00s. He was 7 months old and had rarely been held, most of his life until then was spent in a cage like crib. They put a huge amount of effort into the kid and I guess it paid off, he’s not a rapist or a murderer. He’s a weird kid though, I think he’s on the autism spectrum but his mother shopped him around to multiple doctors until she found one that told her he’s fine. They have high hopes for him, and they’re very supportive. Maybe he’ll be ok as a grown man. But I shudder to think what his life would have been life in Russia, he’d probably be sniffing glue in the train station, in the army at 17, and drunk and homeless by 30.

According to various estimates, 50 to 95 percent of children who grow up in Russian orphanages become drug addicts or alcoholics or commit suicide. Russian orphanages essentially produce children who suffer from Mowgli Syndrome — that is, they are ill-equipped to function in any capacity in society.
Neither is the situation particularly rosy regarding Russian adoptive parents. According to official government statistics, a child adopted by Russian parents is 39 times more likely to die than one adopted by parents in the West. Of course, the causes of death include not only murder and involuntary manslaughter but also car accidents, illness and other factors. Unfortunately, even those statistics understate the problem because Russian courts often fail to initiate criminal proceedings when children are the victims of mistreatment or abuse.
The main difference between children's rights in Russia and in America is that in the U.S., child abuse is a crime. In Russia, it is routine.

I will say this. Years ago I was researching a screenplay on Russian mail order scammer brides so I joined several sites to chat with Russian and Ukrainian women. All of them -- all of them, I repeat -- would ask me about if I drank and if so how often and wanted to know the minute details about my habits.

I was shocked by this. More so than my profession, income, hobbies, etc ... a rude awakening. Eventually they all told me that because I clicked "yes" when it said drink alcohol on the profile this made them think about the men in their country who guzzle vodka day and night and beat women and act afoul and in general bad news men.
