Back to the Future. Russia again waiting for a tough anti-alcohol campaign led by EP

Deputies and senators are planning to develop anti-alcohol bill, which in its essence is similar to the recently adopted tough anti-smoking law.

Experts point out that today the problem of alcoholism in Russia is much more serious than smoking. According to the chief psychiatrist Eugene Brune Russia, more than 3 million Russians suffer from alcoholism, mental illness, more than 20 million severely abuse alcohol. In this age of initiation to alcohol in recent years, we have dropped from 15 to 11 years.

In this regard, experts intend to develop a comprehensive anti-alcohol program. One of its items will be strict ban propaganda and the introduction of penalties for soldering children, according to the publication. The MPs want to ban the show on television drunk people and penalize parents and guardians who encourage harmful propensities of children, buying them alcohol.

The most important point of the anti-alcohol campaign experts believe the adoption of a law prohibiting the sale of alcoholic beverages to those under the age of 21. This initiative, according to polls, 76% of Russians support, but the government is the second time returns the draft for revision.

Experts point out that this is due to the fact that, according to the Ministry of Health, in Proceedings of the bill does not contain conclusive evidence and statistics that point to the need for the proposed measures. However, lawmakers did not lose heart, promising soon to “knock out” the numbers and win the support of the Ministry of Health, Epidemiology, and even the Supreme Court.

Experts at the initiative of the authorities is viewed with skepticism, saying that, despite the lack of tools for efficient monitoring of production sites that are engaged in trade, after the introduction of the new law, dishonest sellers will find a way around it.
