Sakhalin has the lowest level of illegal alcohol sales in Russia

Sakhalin Region, according to the results of 2016 of the year and January-September of 2017, has the highest level of legal sales of alcohol in Russia, the press service of the regional government reported citing published Rosalkogolregulirovaniya (Federal Service for Alcohol Market Regulation). Accordingly, the region has the lowest level of illegal alcohol sales.

As noted, the agency recognizes the efforts of the regional authorities and the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the region. This achievement is due, in particular, to the 100-percent connection of retailers of Sakhalin and Kuriles trading in alcoholic beverages to the USAIS, which traces the path of alcoholic products from production to the consumer. “There is a paradoxical situation. In some regions, according to official data, the sale of alcohol per capita is lower than in the Sakhalin region, and the death rate from poisoning is much higher. I think this happens for one reason - on Sakhalin, where almost all alcohol is sold officially, the statistics are close to reality. In the same place where the EGAIS system does not cover the entire market, part of the alcoholic beverages is sold illegally and, accordingly, is not noted in the statistics. However, it is reflected in the mortality rate, ”the commentary of the regional Minister of Commerce and Food Inna Pavlenko is given in the message. According to her, since 2015, not a single death has been recorded on the islands as a result of accidental alcohol poisoning. The highest rates are in this in the North-Western and Ural federal districts, where there is a lag in the implementation of the Unified State Automated Information System.

The report also notes that the EGAIS influences the transparency of the alcohol market and helps to fill the regional treasury. In the budget of the Sakhalin region in 2017 year before the beginning of traditional pre-New Year sales, 272 million rubles were received. from the sale of strong alcohol.
