The head of the Federation Council refers to the views of unnamed experts, according to her, most of the water on the shelves in Russian stores of unknown origin. “According to experts, up to 80 percent of mineral water standing on the shelves does not match the name”, — assured the speaker.

Matviyenko also praised progress in this area, noting that about 30 companies that made the water “Essentuki”, banned as they did not have access to appropriate wells and, accordingly, they could not use that trademark.
