This is a bit of sensationalism - beer was never treated as a soft drink. There were still restrictions on how much you can bring in over the border (up to 2L for beer), and they wouldn't normally sell it to children under 16. But compared to wine and liquor the rules were a bit more relaxed i.e. you could sell it without a license, so it was available at all grocery stores - that is what the articles are about.

@OldOllie - and yet many of them are more intelligent than you or I. You should maybe avoid doing things without question.

Oh, please, please, please say that to a Russian's face Ollie.

I double dare your ignorant, bigoted, brain-dead wrinkled old a.s.s!

If you need directions to the closest Russian community let me know. I will GLADLY help.

@ uunxx - it took 15 seconds of google to find out if this was true. IT IS

uunxx so I should have known that by "totally" you meant partially and by "untrue" you meant true. Easy mix up. F*ck me for not understanding, right?

@12chars I should have been more elaborate. I'm not Russian but I've spent in Russia enormous amount of time. It's true that beer in Russia was not treated by law as alcoholic drink, but neither it was soft drink. There were several limitations on sales and advertisement of beer (just as everywhere else). With the mentioned law it became treated the same way as stronger drinks and this way Russian law on beer became one of strictest in Europe. So while it's partially true, it's not as much as you think and the sensationalist tone here doesn't show reality at all. The reality is Russians drink a lot but the law was nothing exceptional.

Damn. Some of these "facts" are as dubious as when the western world tried to describe Asia in an academic sense. And yes I know that it's not to far off to classify Russia as a part of the Asian continent. I am talking about the USSR here. Although it no longer has the control it once had, there are still going to be folks ho pine for the days of socialistic simplicity no matter how flawed it is. poo, our own president is trying to do it right now.

uunxx Totally TRUE.

Why would you call something a lie if you yourself don't know the facts?
