alcohol status of Russia (по WHO)

The highest PDS, i.e., the most risky patterns of drinking [это и есть пдс, не путать с пдд и пздтс], have been found in Russia and Ukraine.

The key reasons for the change in the total number and distribution of alcohol-attributable deaths across broad disease categories since the Global status report on alcohol and health 2011 are the new evidence on the role of alcohol consumption in mortality in the Russian Federation (Zaridze et al., 2009, 2014) and the inclusion of infectious diseases in this assessment.

Russian Federation: an example of increased tracking of alcohol as part of a federal law amendment


In 2011, the President of the Russian Federation signed an amendment to the federal law on production and sales of alcohol-containing products. This amendment included strengthened restrictions on the availability of alcohol and marketing of alcoholic beverages. In particular, it increased the responsibility of citizens, officials and legal entities to ensure minors are not sold alcoholic beverages, with criminal consequences for doing so repeatedly. The law also established a series of measures to reduce negative consequences of drinking, such as regulations related to the size of consumer packaging of alcohol and mandatory stamps on alcohol containers.

Moreover, the federal law is aimed at strengthening the protection against illegal production and trafficking of alcoholic beverages, for example through establishment of an automated traffic control system for ethanol and alcohol-containing products on the territory of the Russian Federation. The law also introduced stricter rules for obliging entities such as pharmacies to declare the extent of their use of ethanol for medical purposes in a timely fashion.
