The main non-staff specialist psychiatrist-narcologist of the Ministry of health Yevgeny Bryun suggested to remove alcohol from grocery stores and sell it only in specialized supermarkets.

«I think it’s a good idea that you need to develop: the withdrawal of alcohol in some large supermarkets with certain rules of sales away from the residential complex… I think that this step would be very important: bring alcohol from houses, from districts to private shopping,» said Bruin reporters on Tuesday.

He noted that this idea of doctors was supported in Yakutia, where «brought the sale of alcohol from grocery stores».
