"The Russian Federation has long been considered one of the heaviest-drinking countries in the world."

As a correspondent based there for much of the 1990s, I saw a country which made no attempt to hide its love of vodka. The coming of the free market meant that sidewalk kiosks sprung up everywhere to address consumer demands which communism had not been able to satisfy.

That included lots of alcohol. It was relatively cheap, and available 24/7.

rooted means your fucked ,exhausted or something is broken, I guess from the Term rooting, which is fucking...
So rooted for life , could be tired for life or broken for life....
I've always found it funny how different words mean different things to different peoples. Take for example the Mitsubishi Pajero .... they had to change the name in Spain and the Americas because in Spanish the word Pajero means poof. (although the j is prononced like a h)

Yeah, we have a lot terms for fucking, but not rooting.

"He was rooting around (searching) looking for clues."

"He was rooting around (questioning/talking to people sort of slyly, with a hidden motive) for information.
