The measure, already passed by parliament and now only requiring his signature to go into force, will save lives.
“Tobacco advertising should be prohibited. Smoking should not be stylish,” the president’s son, a member of parliament in the ruling Party of Regions said on March 5. “Health is a human’s main capital, and public health is an indicator of the success of the country. In other words, the lesser people use medical services, the stronger and more efficient is the country in which these people live.
Of course, everyone makes their own choice. But smoking should not be advertised as a fashionable, stylish habit. … Today sports, travel, watching good movies is fashionable. I would like your young people to live according to such.”
