Russian Deputies Introduce Bill on Energy Drinks Ban

A group of Russian lawmakers has proposed a bill that would ban sales of energy drinks in Russia, the State Duma website said on Tuesday.

      According to LDPR party members who authored the bill, many Russians, especially young people, do harm to their health because of uncontrolled sales of caffeine-rich soft drinks and low-alcoholic beverages.

      "Many energy drinks can cause addiction to them, which is very dangerous to the people's mental health," the bill's authors said in a summary of the bill.

      Several similar initiatives have either been rejected or are pending at the State Duma. In the new draft the authors tried to fix all the possible that were in previous versions. The bill is expected to be adopted during the spring session.
