The Chairman of the Duma Committee on economic policy, industry, innovative development and entrepreneurship Sergei Zhigarev (LDPR) supported the introduction of a ban on the production and trafficking of «dry alcohol» in Russia.

«We are against any kind of surrogate alcohols, which including, perhaps, can be attributed to «dry alcohol.» Therefore, we support the bill introduced by the government of the Russian Federation in September,» the Deputy told RIA Novosti.

The government bill complements the law on state regulation of production and turnover of alcohol the concept of «powdered alcohol-containing products» and prohibits its production and/or turnover. Under such products will be defined as food or non-food products in the form of dry substances, designed to produce a product in liquid form, containing in its composition ethyl alcohol.

The MP drew attention that in the countries where the products are produced and distributed, it is still no common understanding and opinions. «For example, in the US authorized the sale of not in all States,» he said. «We also need to take into account the fact that in Russia people drink and drink. We on all sides are trying to protect, but cannot guarantee that they will be powdered substance to dissolve in exactly those proportions in which it is written,» continued Zhigarev.

«Because so far not done a thorough analysis on such products, according to its genological how she acts on the human body in a long period of time, we don’t know and don’t understand how people can damage this powder alcohol-containing granule. And when we do not know and do not understand, it is better not to do a deal,» said the head of the Duma Committee.

Today is a special structure which needs to engage in analysis, laboratory tests, as «dry alcohol» effect on a person, the MP said. And only after we collected all the medical documents confirming that it does not cause harm, then we can say that this production can be put on the market, he said.

So Zhigarev believes that today with the release of «dry alcohol» on the Russian market do not hurry. «As practice shows, all these surrogates are cheap enough, and if they are cheap, are consumed in large quantity is not the most prosperous part of the population», — said the Deputy.

«I personally from its side stand, that was good quality vodka, low-cost,» — said Zhigarev.
