Liquor that “pretends” to be cider

The first reports of poisoning appeared in early June. The reason was Mr. Cider, a low-alcohol drink that “pretended” to be cider, but was actually made not by fermentation, but by adding fake spirits.

The victims of the poisoning were residents of several Russian regions, including Ulyanovsk, Samara, Nizhny Novgorod, Byenchen and Kurgan regions, as well as Chuvashia and Udmurtia.
