Russia reveals plans to ban the sale of Cigarettes to anyone born after 2015

The Russian Health Ministry has unveiled plans to ban the sale of cigarettes to anyone born after 2015

Moscow, Jan 11, 2017: The Russian Health Ministry has unveiled plans to ban the sale of cigarettes to anyone born after 2015, the media reported.

The Health Ministry proposal, which has the backing of President Vladimir Putin, would make Russia the first country in the world to completely phase out tobacco.

The ban proposal, obtained by Russian newspaper Izvestia, would go into effect in 2033, when the affected Russian citizens (now babies) turn 18 years old.

“This goal is absolutely ideologically correct,” Nikolai Gerasimenko, a member of the Russian Parliament’s Health Committee told the Times on Tuesday.

However, Gerasimenko also admitted that he was uncertain whether such a ban would be enforceable.

A Kremlin spokesman said such a ban would need serious consideration and consultation with other Ministries.

The number of smokers in Russia dropped by 10 percent in 2016, according to Russian news agency Tass. (IANS)
