The new standard is planned to be approved within two years. The initiators in the government refer to the experience of European countries. Andrei Loskutov, President of the Russian Cigar Union, Executive Director of the All-Russian Public Movement for the Rights of Smokers, told the Moscow Says radio station that the changes would lead to higher prices for the products. Also, equipping cigarettes with a ring-shaped device will negatively affect the health of smokers, says Loskutov. “If we create obstacles to combustion, then the smoker, I tell you as a consumer of a tobacco product, will have to inhale with more force than he did before. If we put more effort into inhaling on a cigarette, we push the smoke deeper and deeper into our lungs. If we usually smoke the first and second third of the lungs, then we will have to inhale, immerse the smoke in the very bottom of our lungs, in the place that is least ventilated, where the least amount of air exchange occurs. Big health risks of the smoker. " Loskutov clarified that the cigarette is too small for the introduction of special devices into it, unlike a pipe or cigars. “I would like that the tobacco artifact, which would fade away in the smoker's hands, would fade out on its own, if the smoker for some reason does not return to him for some time. In the case of smoking articles, this is a natural concomitant to smoking. “Pipe makers” and those who smoke cigars do not have such a problem, because the pipe and cigar naturally fade if they do not touch them for several minutes, but it will be extremely difficult to implement this on such a small device as a cigarette. Of course, this will affect the rise in price of the product, which is getting more expensive every year”. According to Sergey Slipchenko, vice president for corporate affairs of affiliated companies of Philip Morris International in Russia, tobacco producers will not abandon the introduction of the innovation, but the state should create conditions for merchants to gradually switch to the use of self-extinguishing paper. He said this in an interview with "Moscow Says". According to him, such paper is produced only in a few countries: Spain, Austria, China. The authorities should consider the prospects for creating local capacities for the production of self-extinguishing paper in Russia, Slipchenko said.
