Sober New Year in the Central Moscow

Those citizens and tourists who want to celebrate New Year's Eve on Moscow streets, should prepare for the sober holiday, as the authorities decided to ban the sale of alcohol in the city centre on New Year's Eve night.

      All shops in central Moscow will stop selling all alcoholic drinks at 7pm local time on December 31 and can not resume until 8 am the next day. Not only alcohol but all drinks dispensed into glass containers will be banned.

      The Moscow City Government say the ban will stop drunken revellers in the streets, and prevent extra rubbish. It is also said that the Moscow officials will take preventive measures against trafficking of illicit substances.

      Moreover, the sale of pyrotechnics can only be allowed in special magazines but not through street selling.

      Prohibition on the sale of spirits after 10pm was introduced in Moscow this year. Wine and beer can still be bought.

      Alcohol production can also be bought in the city's suburbs and in Moscow's bars and restaurants.
