What a terrible piece of propaganda and weak research. Soviet Union has discovered fascinating technology of for mass production of champagne. How many french people could afford french champagne in 1930? Top 1%.

Just one last question - if Soviet champagne was such trash - why would MOET acquire Soviet non interrapteable champagne making technology to be deployed in France in 1975?
