National ranking of sobriety, according to which the Magadan region entered the top three most drinking regions of Russia, made unfair and incorrect because it does not include the production of moonshine and home made wine in the regions, told RIA Novosti the representative of the Ministry of health of the Kolyma river.

According to a study of the Federal project «Sober Russia», published Monday on the organization’s website, Chechnya, Ingushetia and Dagestan in the lead in the national ranking of sobriety regions of Russia, the most «drinking» regions were Chukotka, Magadan oblast and Nenets Autonomous Okrug. Experts the study took into account sales of all types of alcoholic beverages, for which we have official statistics. Thus, each of the types of alcoholic beverages were studied separately and were then combined into a single criterion.

«We believe this rating is unfair and incorrect. It does not take into account the production of homemade wine and moonshine. In the South of Russia are known to make homemade wine, in the middle lane – brew. We also use exclusively purchase alcohol. So the count is incorrect», — said the Agency interlocutor.

He added that Magadan oblast improves its performance in terms of mortality in the state of alcoholic intoxication.

«We have 3 years in a row decreases the level of mortality in alcohol intoxication. In General, the figures on the number of crimes committed by drunk, improve. That is, statistics are changing for the better. The region has done a great job. And the rating is virtually unchanged,» — said to represent the Ministry of health.
