WEhen the severe heat hurt the grain crop in Russia, American farmers were so happy thinking they could sell more of their wheat.

I suppose some wine-makers will be thrilled to be able to sell more.

However, neither of those situations were the fault of the Russian Government. It is too bad, but weather happens, and people will survive with a little less wine.

Good news for the Moldovaian mafia. Of course more desperate alcoholics means more deaths from homemade booze and dangerous use of wood alcohol, etc.

Never drank that crap. But my knowledge of wood alcohol came from a Russian book on committing suicide by drinking yourself to death.
