Russians began to drink less, and nizhegorodtsy - there is no

Improbably, but a fact – inhabitants of Russia began to drink less. Vodka and other alcoholic drinks, naturally. It was declared one of these days by the main expert in narcology Minzdravsotsrazvitija of the Russian Federation Evgenie Brjun.

According to Brjuna, in the country for 2010 alcohol consumption was reduced from terrifying 18 litres to the person to 15 litres. It too mnogovato, but officials are assured that Russians and will go further by the way of a sober way of life.

In 2009 this figure was more – 65 diseases, and in 1998 – 71 disease.  

However, Valery Iosifovich has lost for a long time already illusions in this respect: alcoholics on a paper became less, it is truth. But drunkards actually do not become abstainers, simply they leave in private clinics which are multiplied every year. And there all alcoholics are treated anonymously, and to the general statistics do not get.

Now shops reserve alcoholic cocktails and beer more, - has told «» - NN » the representative of the large company - the supplier of alcoholic production.

Suppliers are echoed also by sellers: realisation of alcoholic drinks – it is the main income, especially for small shops. However, here again the nuances.
- well, began to buy vodka a bit less. So after all not   because drink it is less, where there! Simply badjazhat more, drink self-race. At us around the grandma - self-racers is best live, - has confidentially told « The working woman of a small round-the-clock stall. – so not a consonant I with your statistics and the main Russian expert in narcology. They are far from the people.
