FAS recommends regional authorities to analyze regulatory acts that set additional restrictions and prohibitions on sales of alcohol products to verify whether they comply with the current law of the Russian Federation.

Under the law, the authorities of subjects of the Russian Federation cannot set additional restrictions of retail sale of alcohol products in public catering services.

Such actions can restrict competition.

FAS points out that the recommendations do not concern “pseudo-café” that disguise as foot outlets.
