MOSCOW, June 6 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Health Ministry hopes to submit an anti-smoking bill in the government before November 1, 2012, Russian Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova told a press conference on Wednesday.
She noted that the bill was coordinated with all agencies concerned. “I believe that we will succeed to fulfil the presidential instructions timely and submit the already finalized bill,” she said.
“The deadline for the anti-smoking bill to be submitted in the government is set in the presidential instruction before November 1,” the minister recalled.
The Russian Health Ministry has drafted the bill on the protection of health from tobacco consumption consequences. The document, which the ministry submitted in the government on May 20, but which was brought back for finalizing, envisages a ban for smoking at public places, the cigarette sale at trade stands, the demonstration of tobacco products and the smoking process in new audiovisual works intended for children.
