You would think the vodka would be enough.
Go to You Tube and see what life is really like in Russia. It’s bleak. No wonder they’re dosing themselves up with all manner of junk. And it’s no wonder so many young Russian women are desperate to marry a Westerner and get out. Marrying an American is like hitting the lottery. They see what life will be like for them if they stay. Russian men are basically useless, lazy drunken wife beaters and they know it. It’s the same in Ukraine. Sad really.
