The Public Chamber of the Russian Federation proposes to ban the sale of alcohol in the territories of cities in four regions of the Far Eastern Federal District. They want to sell alcohol outside of settlements in specialized stores.

As the RIA News", such an initiative was made by the head of the organization "Sober Russia" Sultan Khamzaev. He proposed to take for the pilot project “the regions with the worst alcohol consumption dynamics”. These include the Magadan, Sakhalin regions, Chukotka, Primorsky Krai, as well as the Nenets Autonomous Okrug.

According to the author of the initiative, while alcohol will be sold in ordinary grocery stores, it will be perceived by the general public as an ordinary product. According to the results of the study "Sober Russia", in 53 regions of the country, the majority of respondents supported the removal of alcoholic beverages in alcohol stores outside the settlements. Khamzaev has already sent an appeal to the head of the Russian government, Mikhail Mishustin.

In July, Khamzaev proposed to introduce additional tax on alcohol sales and tobacco and allocate 30% deductions for health development. In March, the Russian government received an offer close all alcohol stores during the coronavirus quarantine.
