World Health Organization: Russian Alcohol Consumption Drops Sharply

1911 Sga Nov Enews E Cis In The News Main Article

A report released earlier this year by the World Health Organization claims that alcohol consumption has dropped in Russia by 40 percent since 2003. The UN-affiliated body attributes the decrease to a series of measures brought in under President Vladimir Putin, who doesn’t drink liquor and advocates a healthy lifestyle. This trend is a factor in increased life expectancies in Russia—78 years for women and 68 for men, which is an historic peak.

This is encouraging news given the way that alcohol consumption exploded after the fall of communism and the end of the Soviet Union. Evangelical churches have also played an important part with successful Bible-based drug and alcohol rehabilitation ministries, several of which are supported by SGA partners. Please keep praying with us for more opportunities to share the life-changing Gospel in Russia, and point the way to God’s delivering power.
