    Alcoolul este tragedia economiei rusești, spune articolul din Die Welt:

    – un om de afaceri rus care a investit în agricultură povestește care e situația forței de muncă în mediul rural: dacă-ți vin pentru angajare zece oameni, trimiți din start 6-7 acasă; după o lună mai trimiți doi… motivul este alcoolismul

    – există mult de lucru la țară, potențialul e mare, dar din cauza alcoolismului circa 80% din populația rurală din Rusia ar fi incapabilă să se implice într-o muncă organizată

    – un sfert dintre bărbații ruși mor până la vârsta de 55 de ani din cauza alcoolului

    – președintele companiei petroliere Total a murit zilele trecute pe un aeroport din Moscova din cauza unui lucrător beat, al cărui plug de deszăpezit a răsturnat avionul francezului, care a luat foc imediat

    – se face o comparație cu Germania: 51% din băuturile alcoolice consumate în Rusia sunt spirtoase, în timp ce la nemți procentul e de 18%.

    1. The Dying Russians

      Sometime in 1993, after several trips to Russia, I noticed something bizarre and disturbing: people kept dying. I was used to losing friends to AIDS in the United States, but this was different. People in Russia were dying suddenly and violently, and their own friends and colleagues did not find these deaths shocking. Upon arriving in Moscow I called a friend with whom I had become close over the course of a year. “Vadim is no more,” said his father, who picked up the phone. “He drowned.” I showed up for a meeting with a newspaper reporter to have the receptionist say, “But he is dead, don’t you know?” I didn’t. I’d seen the man a week earlier; he was thirty and apparently healthy. The receptionist seemed to think I was being dense. “A helicopter accident,” she finally said, in a tone that seemed to indicate I had no business being surprised.

      The deaths kept piling up. People—men and women—were falling, or perhaps jumping, off trains and out of windows; asphyxiating in country houses with faulty wood stoves or in apartments with jammed front-door locks; getting hit by cars that sped through quiet courtyards or plowed down groups of people on a sidewalk; drowning as a result of diving drunk into a lake or ignoring sea-storm warnings or for no apparent reason; poisoning themselves with too much alcohol, counterfeit alcohol, alcohol substitutes, or drugs; and, finally, dropping dead at absurdly early ages from heart attacks and strokes.

      Back in the United States after a trip to Russia, I cried on a friend’s shoulder. I was finding all this death not simply painful but impossible to process. “It’s not like there is a war on,” I said.

      “But there is,” said my friend, a somewhat older and much wiser reporter than I. “This is what civil war actually looks like. “It’s not when everybody starts running around with guns. It’s when everybody starts dying.”

    2. În rețea a aparut reconstiturea video a accidentului aviatic petrecut pe aeroportul Vnukovo din Moscova, care a dus la moartea sefului companiei de petrol și gaze Total, Christophe de Margerie.

      Avionul Falcon-50, care îl transporta pe președintele corporatiei franceze, s-a prăbușit în noaptea de marți. Accidentul a dus la moartea a patru oameni.

      Potrivit anchetatorilor, accidentul s-a produs din vina șoferului utilajului de deszapezire care, fiind beat, a intrat cu utilajul pe pista de decolare.
