Russia restricts selling times

This article was originally published in Foodnews

THE latest moves in Russia to try and curb the country's massive alcohol consumption have come in the form of a reduction in the legal sales hours of alcohol in Moscow and further calls for a ban on all alcohol advertising. Rob Selby writes: As of September, sales of drinks with an ABV of more than 15% will be illegal between 11pm and 10am in the Russian capital. This will apply to the off-trade only, and in Moscow only, as there are no nationwide alcohol regulations. The Russian public health chief, Gennady Onishchenko, welcomed the move, but said it was time to ban all alcohol advertising across Russia as part of "complex measures" to tackle alcohol abuse, which the Russian government has identified as a key factor inhibiting economic development.
