Soviet-Style Kitchen Drinking: This author is certain that the collapse of the Soviet Union occurred when the citizens began drinking WARM vodka. Coming to Kiev for my African photo exhibition, to show my film "Rwandan Gambit" and to be interviewed by local TV channel I demanded one thing: to relive old days Soviet-style vodka drinking (frozen vodka drinking) I was too young to remember. My hosts happily fulfilled my dream vodka in the kitchen. But it was not frozen!!!
