According to my paper the international financial crisis has grown so deep that Russians are consuming less vodka.
At the beginning of the year, vodka stocks were six times higher than at the same time last year. Maybe the guys checking the stocks had drunk such quantities of the liquid that they saw a lot more barrels than there were ?
And, if it was that bad at the beginning of the year, what can we expect for the end of the year, now that the crisis has hit really hard ? No vodka at all ?
Dangerous times indeed ...
