MOSCOW, October 3 (Itar-Tass) - The committee on economic policy, innovative development and entrepreneurship under the State Duma lower house of the Russian parliament on Thursday recommended the house to turn down the bill banning production and sale of homemade high-proof distilled spirits.
The bill suggesting fines from 3,000 to 5,000 roubles with confiscation of illegal moonshine and production equipment was initiated by the legislative assembly of the Jewish Autonomous Region in the Far East.
Deputy head of the house committee Viktor Zvagelsky noted inconsistencies in the explanatory note to the bill. "Oddly, their ban is selective: it follows from the note you can make wine and beer at home, yet you can't add spirit to it," he said.
There are no restrictions at present in Russia on producing homemade alcoholic average for one's household needs. "Such a ban is inexpedient," Zvagelsky said.
At present, Russia's state regulation of the production of ethyl alcohol does not apply to citizens who do not sell their homemade products, including high-proof distilled spirits.
