There are no national features. There is alcoholism

Our society already starts gathering frightful harvest of practically complete absence of antialcoholic propaganda. And there is no need to reassure oneself that Ukraine now is not a world leader according to the consumption of alcohol per capita. With the present rates of distribution of, softly speaking, amity to the green serpent among all layers and different age categories of our fellow-citizens we have considerable chances to catch up with and leave far behind today's front-rank workers France and Spain.

Firm persuasion about it was expressed by all without an exception participants of the round table devoted to the theme National features of alcoholism in Ukraine, which took place in Kyiv.
