The final decision on the return of the system of sobering-up stations in Russia is still pending. This was stated by RIA Novosti, the chief narcologist of the country Yevgeny Bryun.

The question, according to him, remains in the revision.

In the autumn of last year, Brune said that such institutions will be opened in 11 cities, which will host world Cup games in 2018. Each region will independently decide to which Department they shall be carried to the bodies of internal Affairs or of health.

The idea was supported by the representatives of the fan environment. The head of the fans club Russia Unities Eduard Latypov said that many football fans arriving in a new country or city, can never appear at the stadium, spending all that time at the bar.

The football championship in the summer of 2018 will be held in Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Kazan, Rostov-on-don, Sochi, Yekaterinburg, Volgograd, Samara, Saransk and Kaliningrad.

The system of sobering-up stations have been liquidated in Russia in 2011 with the reform of the MIA. In September 2015, 80 percent of respondents “Levada-the Centre” has supported the initiative on her return, which was made by the Minister of health Veronika Skvortsova.

In some regions and cities there are special companies who have taken on the role of sobering-up stations. December 26, 2016, the Center of temporary stay of persons in a condition of alcoholic intoxication, opened in Chelyabinsk.
