author: Ludmila Ternovaya

Till the end of October Russian Government intends to consider the anti-tobacco bill, according to what the veto on smoking in public places can be put beginning from January 1, 2015. The document also stipulates the veto upon cigarettes sales in booths and upon tobacco advertising.

Bashkir parliamentarians support this legislative initiative.

“I welcome all wishes and actions, directed to prophylactics of smoking” – the deputy chairman of the State Council-Kurultay-RB Lilia Gumerova says – “The idea is undoubtedly necessary for our younger generation but we have to work hard to make this law a reality”.
