At the same time the author of an initiative Leonid Ogul addressed as well to Minpromtorg. This ministry its offer did not support the Photo: Maxim the Ministry of Health supported by Grigoriev/TASS the offer on restriction of availability of alcohol. The ministry considers that alcohol should be moved in the enclosed space of shops or alcoholic beverages stores, Interfax writes. The Deputy Minister of Health Oleg Salagai noted that such measure would allow to reduce consumption of alcohol in Russia. He refers not only to the Russian Concept on prevention of alcoholism till 2020, but also to the European experience.
