Alcoholic beverages should be sold only in specialized stores, which will be located away from residential areas. This was stated by the chief psychiatrist-narcologist of the Ministry of health of Russia Yevgeny Bryun, reports “Interfax”.
“All alcohol must be displayed in large liquor stores — not in residential areas, and in the wasteland, or more or less remote distance from home,” he said. Such restrictions are only possible in large cities, recognized the Bruin. In the villages to bring the sale of alcohol away from home will not work, so in these settlements need to reduce the hours that are allowed to sell alcohol.
According to the physician, these measures will help to significantly reduce alcohol consumption in Russia.

The office noted that the restriction of the sale of the products will decrease their consumption. However, the idea was not approved by the Federal Antimonopoly service and the Ministry of economic development. They felt that the opening of the spetsmagazinah much impact on other outlets.
