The minimum age for purchase of alcohol can be increased up to 20 years

Increase up to 20 years of age of buyers of these goods can become an additional measure for reduction of consumption of tobacco and alcoholic products. "Probably, not accidentally many countries including our neighbors from the CIS, make the decision on, say, to sell alcohol not from 18 years, and with 20 or since 21. There are all bases to assume that at earlier age there are certain risks of accustoming, children just ruin the health", – the Deputy Prime Minister for social problems Tatyana Golikova has said.
