The reason for the price rise is alcoholism. Its so bad in Russia that average life expectancy is below 60 years (mostly due to alcohol abuse)...........

Average life expectancy below 60? Watch out as half of Glasgow emigrates. Irn Bru will be miffed. Seemingly Russia had embraced not only glasnost but a notion for a wee voddie and irn bru.

When i first visited Lithuania you could buy a bottle ( my guess is 750ml ) of local vodka for 90p - which was about the same price as a similar sized bottle of pepsi :)

:p Vodka & Irn bru is great. I used to drink vodka and cola (also coke, but that is another story!) but kept on waking up in strange places, covered in sick. with a sore head, and dodgy tummy.

Decided i had to start looking after myself and ditched the cola.
