The introduction of additional restrictions on the sale of alcohol was approved by deputies of the Legislative Assembly of the Trans-Baikal Territory. It is planned to add another day in the region when the sale of alcohol will be completely banned.

According to the press service of the regional government, the sale of alcohol will be banned on the All-Russian Day of Sobriety - September 11. It has been celebrated in Russia for more than 100 years.

The main goal of the innovation is to draw the attention of residents of the region to the problem of alcoholization of the population and to the fight against alcoholism among adolescents. Sociologists have found that in March 2020, Russian residents called alcohol abuse one of the five most pressing problems of society.

Among residents of Transbaikalia, alcoholization is higher than the average for Russia. Similar Sobriety Days have also been introduced to the Republic of Udmurtia, Belgorod, Irkutsk and Saratov Regions.
