    Well it is degrading if you see the amount a lot of them get through. Russia has a big problem with it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcohol_consumption_in_Russia

    But of course we can agree there are plenty of Russians that don't do this. If you ask your Russian friends I think they will admit there is an issue back home.

    You do know that in the academic world wikipedia is never used as reference...right? I would rather that you get me a published journal article.

    Sure, but then academics would not accept Encylopaedia Britannica either. This forum is not the academic world. Reputable encylopaedias and dictionaries are fine here. And Wiki is pretty reliable for most purposes in science, I have found.

    On the question itself, do you dispute that there is a significant problem of alcohol abuse in Russia? Or are you just messing about?

    Well I think you should be prepared to, for most science matters. The writers seem generally pretty good. I have found one or two poorly written ones, but the overall standard seems quite high to me and cross-checks well with other sources.

    On matters with a political twist it can be different I agree.

    Like i said. It would have been nice if you could give me a published article on this issue. I am not trying to argue but rather i would like us to come to one conclusion
