On gas stations have decided to return alcohol


The government has agreed to allow trade in weak alcohol at gas stations (gas station). The Vedomosti newspaper belonging to Demyan Kudryavtsev's family with reference to sources writes about it. It is noted that such decision has been made in September at a meeting with the Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak. According to participants of a meeting, the offer to return at gas station beer and wine was discussed in the context of stabilization of the retail fuel market. Thus, the government has supported the initiative of the member of the Federation Council from the Astrakhan region Gennady Ordenov. In January, 2017 he has introduced to the State Duma the draft of amendments to the law on regulation of the alcoholic market allowing sale of alcohol with a strength up to 16,5 percent at gas station. Ordenov considers that the ban imposed in 2011 is inefficient: the number of accidents with participation of drunk drivers hasn't decreased, and alcohol can be bought in the shops which are near gas stations. At the same time owners of gas station have suffered as it became unprofitable to support shops at gas stations. Representatives of the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Transport, Rosneft, Lukoil, Gazprom Neft, Tatneft, Surgutneftegas, X5 Retail Group, Auchan, "Magnet", Dixie haven't responded to the requests of the edition. In June, 2017 the Ministry of Finance has supported amendments of senator Gennady Ordenov about cancellation of the current ban on sale of alcoholic products at gas station. The document was also agreed by Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Economic Development, Minpromtorg and Federal Service for Alcohol Market Regulation. Meanwhile the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Rospotrebnadzor have objected: according to them, it contradicts policy on decrease in abuses of alcohol.
