Moscow bans vodka sales after 10pm 莫斯科晚十点后禁售伏特加
From the beginning of September, Moscow's supermarkets, shops and kiosks are not allowed to sell vodka from 10 p.m. to 10 a.m., the Telegraph reported. Russian officials estimate that 500,000 people die of alcohol-related reasons every year, while President Dmitry Medvedev has declared Russia's drinking problem "a national disaster." The new ban is unlikely to affect more affluent Russian drinkers, however, as vodka will still be freely sold late into the night at restaurants and bars that serve food. 英国《每日电讯报》报道,从9月份开始,莫斯科的超市、商店以及茶点亭将不得在晚十点至早十点之间出售伏特加。据官方估计,俄罗斯每年约有50万人因酗酒死亡。俄罗斯总统梅德韦杰夫也曾表示说,该国的饮酒问题已成为一场“国家灾难”。报道称,由于饭店和卖食品的酒吧依然可以在深夜自由出售伏特加,该禁令将不大可能影响到那些比较富有的饮酒者。
