Average Russian Drinks Over 10 Litres of Alcohol Over New Years

In Russia, the New Year’s holiday is celebrated for 10 days during which 1.5 billion liters of alcohol are consumed. That is a little more than 10 liters (2.6 gallons) per person and the empty bottles of mostly vodka and whiskey would stretch around the Earth 17 times if set side-by-side.

It may not be a surprise that the number one cause of death in Russia is alcohol. 52% of deaths among men aged 15-54 are the result of alcohol.

Alcohol results in deaths due mostly to accidents and violence, alcohol poisoning, and heart disease among other factors such as cancer and less common diseases.
