* In ''DoctorStrangelove'', we only hear President Muffley's side of the conversation with Soviet Premier Kisov, but even without the ambassador's word on the matter it's fairly obvious that Kisov is sloshed.

* [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19008_the-7-most-unexpectedly-awesome-parties-in-history.html Upon hearing of the surrender of Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union partied so hard that the entire country ran out of vodka in ''less than a day'']]. The next day the '''[[UpToEleven ENTIRE COUNTRY]]''' was hungover and you would be lucky enough to buy a liter of vodka at the train station.
* Russian ''[[TankGoodness Tanks]]'' can run on vodka. As well as gasoline, and, really, anything liquid that burns, though not as good as on traditional diesel. For that matter, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NaaP7bQglcU so do the drivers]].

** In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPortableOps'', we have Colonel Skowronski, the former commander of the San Hieronymo Soviet Missile Base, who is heavily implied to be drunk in his appearance (he was slurring his words a lot of the time, laughing at seemingly inappropriate times, and Roy Campbell refers to him as a drunk when he calls you right after you locate him). Actually, several of the soldiers on the San Hieronymo Peninsula were implied to drink a lot (one of the calls to Para-Medic, should she be recruited, has her being confused about why they were having headaches at the height they are at as the mountains shouldn't be high enough to cause altitude sickness, until she realizes that they actually had amplified hangovers from drinking too much alcohol at the height they currently were at). It's probably justifiable that they did so, considering the fact that their nation essentially screwed them over by abandoning them at the peninsula shortly after they abandoned the construction plans in order to make it seem as though they were [[RenegadeRussians renegade Russians]].

Somewhat TruthInTelevision; alcoholism is a rather large problem in Russia and is a major contributor to high suicide rates and lowered average male lifespan[[note]]which was ''so bad'' at quite a recent point that it was the lowest of any industrialized nation, though there's a lot more to that than booze[[/note]]. Vodka sales were also a prime source of revenue for the Russian government for much of its history, going as far back as the dawn of TsaristRussia -- arguably, the first ruler to use alcohol tax as a major source of revenue was UsefulNotes/IvanTheTerrible. Many bottles of cheap vodka in Russia came with a paper pull tab rather than a screw-top because, like its owner, it's going to be drunk in one sitting. In fact, ''aftershave'' is reported to be marketed in recycled vodka flasks so people don't look cheap while drinking it.
