Smoking Ban can be canceled in 2018
We all know that the next FIFA World Cup 2018 will take place in Russia. It means thousands of people from all over the world will visit this country. That is why State Duma is eager to cancel smoking ban which came into force starting from the 1st of June 2014.  

Andrey Krutov is among deputies who are ready to cancel this ban due to the fact that drastic anti-smoking measures can result in conflicts and quarrels between policemen and foreign football fans. This can make a negative effect on the overall image of the country.

The main idea of such cancelation is to allow smoking in cafes, bars, restaurants, trains, airports, railway stations and on stadiums. This can be one only in special places provided for smokers.


FIFA World Cup 2018 will take place in Russia. It is already 21st tournament where the world’s strongest football teams compete for the main prize. This will be the first time when this tournament is taking place in Russia.  Moreover this is the first time when it is arranged in Eastern Europe. It will take place in 11 Russian cities on 12 different stadiums.
