MOSCOW, October 18 (Itar-Tass) —— A bottle of cheap vodka will cost 180 rubles, while a pack of cheap cigarettes will be sold for 40 rubles in 2014, Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Shatalov said at the Tuesday meeting of the State Duma Budget Committee, which discussed a bill on the increase of excise rates in 2012-2014.
The shift of the tax burden on ethyl alcohol will not solve the problem of the shadow alcohol market, Shatalov said. He said the solutions could be found in stricter control over the production and distribution of alcoholic beverages and tighter punishment of violations.
