** Actually, it's a matter of logistics. Having an universal liquid which can do many things is a source of happiness for guys in the logistics sector, not unlike the [[UsefulNotes/YanksWithTanks Americans]] who fueled their every single war machine with only one fuel, JP-8.

* On ''Series/WorldsDumbest'', more than half the clips from Russia involve alcohol. This always gets Frank Stallone going about how much he hates Russia.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Mercenaries}} 2'', we have Misha, whose alcoholism is arguably justified by his being a jet-flying DrunkenMaster.

** UsefulNotes/BorisYeltsin. Especially in the later years of his presidency. At one point, while visiting UsefulNotes/BillClinton in UsefulNotes/WashingtonDC, Yeltsin turned up in his underwear on Pennsylvania Avenue, trying to hail cabs. During TheNineties, [[Series/TheTonightShow Jay Leno]] always first referred to Yeltsin in the monologue as "Boris 'Buy Me A Drink' Yeltsin." At one time, his plane was flying to UsefulNotes/{{Ireland}} for a refueling stopover, and the Taoiseach ([[UsefulNotes/PrimeMinistersOfIreland Irish Prime Minister]]) was on hand to receive him. But instead of landing, the plane circled Shannon Airport and circled until it landed. But Yeltsin never made it off the plane, his doctor stating that the President was not feeling well. For a little while afterward, "circling over Shannon" became Irish slang for "trying desperately to sober up before an important event." This is referenced at one point in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', where the highest possible reading on a breathalyzer's scale is "Boris Yeltsin". Among the other "achievements" of the Yeltsin administration were [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-z9wfueMAw his contributions to modern dance and music conducting.]]
* Modern Russian Internet satirist Gaius Anonimous, who lampoons the daily buzz as the supposed doings in the UsefulNotes/AncientRome during the early Principate, even invented a [[CanisLatinicus faux-Latin]] name for him -- Gaius Borealis Alcoligula.

* Ivan Vanko in ''Film/IronMan 2'' is very fond of his vodka. Even the burd loves vodka. His father wasn't so alcoholic until he [[spoiler:was forced out of the US by Howard Stark for trying to profit off the Arc Reactor research]]. After that he turned to alcohol to numb the pain of being forced to live out his days in Siberia and died a drunken mess.

** Alcoholism is a plot-relevant off-"screen" detail in ''Literature/TheHuntForRedOctober'': The wife of the renegade submarine captain Ramius died of complications from appendicitis. The doctor that was to perform the surgery was drunk, and while breathing pure oxygen to try to sober up her appendix burst. The still-inebriated doctor fumbled the surgery to remove the burst organ, resulting in the death of the wife of Ramius. Ramius' dissatisfaction with the Soviet state started at this point, when the surgeon wasn't punished [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections because he was the son of a high-ranking party official]]. [[note]]Some people have complained that the captain of a Soviet ballistic missile submarine is too important a position too let this slip that easily � in a somewhat similar RealLife incident in 1985, when a bunch of drunk {{Dirty Cop}}s robbed and murdered a [[UsefulNotes/MoscowCentre KGB]] officer on the UsefulNotes/MoscowMetro, the scandal went high enough as to end in the all-powerful Minister of Interior Shelepin's resignation, but the book ''was'' written decades before the Iron Curtain came down and the [[ArtisticLicense details of the Soviet political life became known to the trillers' authors]].[[/note]]

** Or, alternately, it might be a contraction of "razvodka" or "dilution" � a crucial step in its production, as when vodka was still produced by distillation, both first and second distillation were diluted in half (by weight) with spring water, ending with the 38-39% abv strength, from which the now traditional 40% abv ultimately derives.
