Rospotrebnadzor named the most drinking regions of Russia

CPS announced the regions in which most people drink alcohol. The Agency concluded that, in General, to drink alcohol, people have less. Experts do not agree.

The CPS in the report “Impact of alcohol consumption and tobacco Smoking on human health” was named the most drinking regions in the country, reports the newspaper “Izvestia”.

Became the leader of Magadan oblast, where, on average, the sales volume amounted to 14.1 liters of pure alcohol per capita. The three also got Moscow and Sakhalin oblast.

Less alcohol in the past year was purchased in the republics of the North Caucasus. In Ingushetia and Chechnya, the figure was 0.1 l per capita, in Kabardino-Balkaria — 0.5 l, and in North Ossetia — 0,6 L.

The CPS also noted the decrease in beer sales to 53 litres per person. Leaders in the consumption of this drink are Moscow oblast, Khakassia and Sakhalin oblast. Less than just drink beer in Ingushetia, Dagestan and Chechnya.

In General, the Ministry noted that the consumption of alcohol in the country for five years have dropped by 40%, citing restrictive measures and the state excise policy. However, the manufacturers themselves believe that the CPS data does not faithfully reflect reality. For example, in Tatspirtprom these statistics, “Izvestia” explained that in recent years in many regions has increased the illegal sector, which the CPS does not account for.

According to the Director of the Institute of narcological health of the nation Oleg Zykov, the CPS data does not reflect the consumption pattern and structure of sales of alcohol in the country. For example, rural residents are buying less alcohol in the store, because they themselves produce moonshine, which statistic does not account for. In turn in Moscow and Moscow region, people do not use surrogates, because the capital, people have more opportunities to purchase legal alcohol.
