It is widely known that society’s attitude towards alcohol drinking is different within various cultures. More often in the developed countries there is a range of laws restricting the alcohol drinking in public, or at the particular time, or by the young people of the particular age. If you do not know the rules in any foreign country that you visit, you’d better make inquiries in order to be sure when it is appropriate even to speak about it not only drinking. At the same time, if all the legislation requirements are followed, the alcohol is rather common and valued. In Ukraine it is used in a lot of Ukrainian social rituals and consumed in an everyday life, at table, for example.
