The advisory council at the government has suggested to enter on her a 20 percent excise within the Demography national project for strengthening of health of Russians, Izvestia has reported. The Ministry of Health — for, producers — against. Experts are sure that excises will reduce consumption of sparkling water, also the risk of consequences — diabetes and obesity will decrease. The number suffering from excess weight last year in the country has grown by 6%. Russians will begin to pass to healthy food, and the budget will receive additional receipts. The initiative was already supported by the Ministry of Health. Two years ago the excise was suggested to be entered in the Ministry of Finance, but have refused a measure, having considered it inefficient, the president of the Union of producers of soft drinks and mineral waters Maxim Novikov reminds: Maxim Novikov the president of the Union of producers of soft drinks and mineral waters "Today this offer at the level of opinion of a number of experts, opinion of the non-core regulator. Introduction of a 20 percent excise from retail cost — extremely drastic and not reasonable measure.
