The Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation believes that this will increase the effectiveness of the fight against illegal production and circulation of alcoholic beverages.

Now in the country it is forbidden to sell alcohol in plastic packaging with a strength of more than 28 degrees. The ban also applies to the sale of alcohol in PET containers larger than 1.5 liters, regardless of the proportion of alcohol. However, there is an exception for bottles not exceeding 50 ml, as well as for export duty free products.

Let's remind, from containers made of such plastics as 5. PP (polypropylene), 3. PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and 7. O (other plastics) drinking alcohol is dangerous to health. When interacting with alcohol, they release toxins and heavy metals. Also released is formaldehyde, a substance that causes skin irritation, itching and rashes, headaches, and trouble sleeping.
