New Anti-Smoking Law Came Into Force in Russia

An anti-smoking law that bans smoking in public places, including in government buildings, healthcare and educational facilities, cultural sites, sports stadiums and on public transport, came into force on Saturday, June 1.

      The bill was signed into the law by Russian president on February 25. It comes into force on June 1, but some of its clauses, such as a total ban on smoking in restaurants, trains and hotels, will only start working one year later.

      The legislation also imposes a total ban on tobacco advertising. Tobacco companies will be barred from holding promotional prize draws and sponsoring public events and competitions. It is not allowed to display tobacco products in shops.

      Russia currently has one of the highest rates of smoking in the world. The new law is expected to save up to 200,000 lives annually.
