Russia has proposed to introduce a new levy on sales of alcohol and tobacco

Russia has proposed to introduce a new levy on sales of alcohol and tobacco for health development, reports RT with reference to the letter of the OP member, the head "Sober Russia" Sultan Khamzayev Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

Khamzayev said the need to charge a 30 percent profit after paying all the necessary taxes.

The social worker noted that retailers and food service operators get more revenues from the sale of alcohol and tobacco, but the state has to deal with all the social burden associated with the misuse of these products.

However, added Khamzayev, the final cost of these goods should not lay a share of the royalties. Thus, according to the author of the letter, the price of these products when using the mechanisms of regulation will rise by no more than 10 percent.
