“It’s impossible to regulate the prices and alcohol market without such a document [on a concept for alcohol policy],” Director of the Ukrainian National Alcohol and Drug Observatory of the Health Ministry of Ukraine Anatoliy Viyevsky said at a press conference in Kyiv on Thursday.

According to him, an alcohol situation in Ukraine will continue worsening without such a document, and the country could face unpredictable consequences.

“If our country doesn’t have an alcohol policy approved by a state document, then the 26 fatalities that occurred in the Czech Republic could be nothing compared to our [possible consequences],” Viyevsky said.
