Children may be involved in control purchases of tobacco in Russia


In the Russian Federation, they can begin to conduct test purchases of tobacco products, vapes and electronic cigarettes in stores, attracting minors for this. About this, as reported TASS, said Natalya Agra, director of the Institute for the Study of Childhood, Family and Education of the Russian Academy of Education.

She sent a letter to the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation Vladimir Kolokoltsev, which contains a request “to consider the following proposals: to ensure the possibility of systematic cooperation with public organizations in the framework of joint departmental and public inspections, including with the involvement of minor volunteers (with the consent of parents or guardians) “.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a federal law on a single minimum price for tobacco products. This price will be determined in accordance with the procedure established by the government of the Russian Federation, and below which tobacco products cannot be sold. At the same time, tobacco will be sold at maximum retail prices, which cannot be lower than the single minimum price for tobacco products.
