The Public Chamber (OP) has published a rating of alcohol consumption in the country. The lowest retail sales of alcohol were in Chechnya, Ingushetia and Kabardino-Balkaria.

According to "Prime", the calculation was made on the basis of data from Rosstat "Average annual number of permanent population" and Rosalkogolregulirovaniya volume of retail sales of alcoholic beverages in liters of anhydrous alcohol.

The most drinking regions of the country in terms of per capita, according to the OP, were the Sakhalin, Magadan regions and Karelia.

According to experts, those regions where alcohol consumption is lower are characterized by a better state of health of the population. Thus, residents of Ingushetia, Chechnya and Dagestan suffer the least from alcoholic psychoses and alcoholism.

At the same time, in regions where alcohol is purchased in large quantities, people get sick more often. The worst situation with psychoses and alcoholism is in the "actively drinking" subjects of the country — in Primorye, Sakhalin region and Chukotka.

In order to reduce alcohol consumption, the authorities of some regions impose a moratorium on the sale of alcohol in stores for the period of long holidays. Bootleggers who offer underground goods to consumers instead of legal ones react quickly to these measures.
