Japanese journalist Mititaka Hattori analyzed the reasons for the collapse of the Soviet Union in an article published in Asahi Shimbun on September 9.
According to Matitaka Hattori, one of the reasons for the collapse of the Soviet Union was the anti-alcohol campaign launched by Gorbachev in 1985. In his view, the anti-alcohol movement caused tragedy and comedy in all fields in the Soviet Union, and also caused the stagnation of Gorbachevs reform policy.
At the same time, (anti-alcohol campaign) aroused the anger of the drinkers, who only drink as a form of entertainment, and eventually (anti-alcohol campaign) led to the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991, Gorbachev resigned. Mititaka Hattori wrote in the article.
Mititaka Hattori also likened Yeltsin, Russias first president after the collapse of the Soviet Union, to a loyal fan of alcohol. Mititaka Hattori believes that this is why Yeltsin succeeded in ousting Gorbachev, his opponent of the ban.
In addition, Mititaka Hattori refutes the idea that Russians are alcoholics. He believes that Russians are less able to drink than Japanese, and they seldom drink in daily life. In Japan, many people drink every day, but in todays Russia, this situation is very rare.
MititakaHattoris comment has attracted many Russian netizens.
Someone complained that the Japanese journalist had simplified the complicated problem_
Alexei Gapanovic: Idiots always like to simplify problems.
Beta-k: Hes right to some extent, but the only problem is that his views on Gorbachev and Yeltsin are silly...
Someone else Tucao, the Japanese journalist, threw the Soviet Unions disintegrating pot into the common people.
Moroz 524534: If you listen to this reporter, you will think that the Soviet Union finally disintegrated in the anger of ordinary citizens, not in the conspiracy of the authorities.
Others expressed their dissatisfaction directly with Mititaka Hattori_
Beta-k: This is not exactly the case. Since the 1970s, the Soviet Union has been short of alcoholic products. But even then, you cant talk about the disintegration of this country.
