You must be 18 years of age to purchase any kind of alcohol in Russia, so if you look younger, be prepared to be asked for your passport at all times, even when simply buying a beer at a supermarket. Drinking in public is strictly prohibited in Russia, and is punishable by heavy fines, but more importantly, involvement with the police, which is highly undesirable in Russia to begin with. Be sure to follow all the rules at all times, including in and around the stadiums. Bringing your own alcohol into official venues on match days is strictly prohibited.
