Russia, Belarus ahead of the curve in vodka consumption

According to The Economist, 11.3 litres of vodka fall on an average Belarusian annually.

At that, we are second to Russia: its citizen downs 13.9 litres of the stuff every year. By the way, Russians get nearly 50 per cent of vodka produced in the whole world. Unsurprisingly, they are among the biggest drinkers in the world, according to theWorld Health Organisation data.

Ukrainians take the third place: per capita consumption reaches 7.7 litres annually. Poland closes the group of leaders (7 litres of vodka per person).
