France And Russia Are In A Tussle Over Who Gets To Call Champagne ... 'Champagne'

quote [ French law says only sparkling wine produced in the Champagne region can use the name. A new Russian law reserves the name for bubbly produced and sold in Russia. ]

Can someone please explain Russia to me? Like, do they just feel like they have to act like assholes to get in the news so the world doesn't forget they exist, or is there something they actually want?

Yes. They want to be the center of the world.

It's a battle of cultures, and russia, like others, feel slighted and want to be in the same conversation of history as France, the US, and Britain.

Oh come on, Russia, you guys got to be the villains in a hundred kickass 80s movies while the only thing anyone remembers about the French is the Simpsons making fun of them!

I'm thinking this may not have much of an effect. I assume the Russian people who insisted on drinking French Champagne with continue to buy the stuff that's made in France. Those who don't care about the national origin of their beverages were probably already buying Russian champagne and will continue to do so.
