A Russian gathering without vodka is like a pool party without a pool. But that’s how it’ll be at the upcoming Summer Games thanks to new restrictions from the nation’s Olympic committee.
In response to a poor Russian team performance at the Vancouver Olympics, national officials have banned vodka and wine from all events at four Russian hospitality houses in London. The news was reported by the Russian daily, Kommersant.
