In this regard, vaporizers used for the consumption of nicotine are prohibited from smoking in public places, including public transport stops, parking lots, subways and parks. about the harmlessness of electronic cigarettes involves adolescents into the ranks of smokers, which is of particular concern. Restricting the use of such devices in public places protects others from both secondhand smoke and smoking propaganda, "the statement of the Chairman of the State Assembly of the Republic Konstantin Tolkachev said.

Changes to the law will take effect 10 days after the official publication of the document.
