Russia wants to introduce an additional tax on the sale of alcohol and tobacco. Deductions of 30% will go to health care development.

It is reported RT with reference to the head of the federal project "Sober Russia" Sultan Khamzaev. He proposed to collect a new levy after all necessary taxes have been paid. In his opinion, entrepreneurs receive large revenues from the sale of alcohol and cigarettes, and the state is forced to fight alcoholism and tobacco dependence of the population.

Khamzaev added that losses from deductions cannot be included in the final cost of these goods. Implementation of the idea will allow regional medical institutions to receive a new source of funding. According to Sober Russia, the total economic losses from these measures amount to 5% of GDP.

Formerly the State Duma introduced a ban on selling to minors vapes, hookahs and electronic cigarettes. Responsibility is also provided for the involvement of children in the process of their use.
