The sale of alcohol in Russia on January 1 and 2 is proposed to be banned. This initiative was taken by the Sober Russia movement.

According to the agency RT, the head of the federal project "Sober Russia" Sultan Khamzaev sent a proposal to ban the sale of alcohol on the first New Year's days to the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov. In his address, a member of the Public Chamber notes that immediately after the New Year, there is a surge in alcohol poisoning and an increase in the number of calls to the ambulance. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, this will put an additional burden on the healthcare system.

Earlier, Sultan Khamzaev has already sent a similar appeal, but to the head of the Ministry of Health, Mikhail Murashko. The truth then was about limiting Sales alcohol on New Year's holidays in time - from 14:00 to 18:00.
