It is estimated that every third Russian man and every seventh Russian woman is an alcoholic. Poisoning by counterfeit alcohol kills 42,000 Russians every year, the country's interior minister has said.

"Food shops and convenience stores in Russian towns frequently offer a dazzling range of alcoholic drinks, sometimes in very elaborate bottles and packages. But as Russia's interior minister pointed out, what they contain is sometimes not vodka, cognac or wine, but any number of potentially fatal substances. Speaking in the Russian city of Novgorod, the minister said that bottles of White Stork - a rather cheap but once popular brand of cognac - were still on sale, despite the fact that production of it ended years ago."
