Then some crazy things started to happen Рthis year Soviet long-in-power Brezhnev died. He was in power since 1964 Рalmost 20 years.  After his death Soviet leaders started dying one after another almost each year.

Just imagine – a few years before Russian 1917 Revolution alcohol was also banned during World War I in Russia. As a result – the Russian Empire collapsed.
