World leaders’ favourite drinks

Vladimir Putin

Vladimir PutinIt would be easy to think that Putin’s favourite drink would be vodka, but he is actually not much of a drinker. It has been reported that before becoming Russia’s president he used to empty his drinks into flower pots. But he developed a taste for beer when he visited Germany and now that is reportedly the only alcohol that he drinks. Putin’s low-level drinking is in stark contrast to the first president of the Russian Federation, Boris Yeltsin, who was leader from 1991 to 1999. Yeltsin was known to be a big vodka drinker and reportedly almost caused several international incidents as a result of being drunk. In 1995 while staying at the White House a drunk Yeltsin slipped passed his guards and was later found outside the White House in his underpants, trying to hail a taxi and buy some pizza.
