Soda will rise in price

The price of sugary carbonated beverages in Russia will increase on average by 20 percent due to the growth of excise taxes on this category of goods. The corresponding measure was proposed by the advisory council under the government in its response to the federal project "Strengthening public health", which Izvestia learned about.
This project is part of the national project "Demography". One of the objectives of the document is to reduce the consumption of sugar. The authors of the initiative believe that the increase in prices for soda will contribute to the refusal of Russians from harmful drinks and the transition to a healthy diet, which will contribute to healthier people.
Now about 2 million people are obese in the country. This is not the first attempt to introduce excise taxes for soda. The first document with a similar proposal entered the State Duma in December 2015. Now excise taxes are established in Russia for alcoholic beverages and ethyl alcohol.

In Russia, an average of 82.4 liters of soda per person is consumed per year. For comparison, the average American drinks 287.3 liters of sweet soft drinks per year.
