Participants of the market do not exclude that so prompt reaction from Ukrainian vodochnikov can mean that the statement of Rosportebnadzora has really excited them. to predict, as the situation will develop, now still it is impossible, but it is possible to assume only that if the interdiction for the Ukrainian hard liquor will be entered - and these are not less than 10 % of the Russian market, - repartition will be rigid - the head of department on public relations " has declared daily; Synergies Andrey Malafeev.
