    it seems to me, the meaning is 'economy' here, cos it's 122 mln.roubles - Ежегодно прокуривается в СССР (Выпускается на воздух) - sounds like it's bad for the national economy.

    Smoking in hospital is not allowed of course. But what then?
    The only penalty is driving out, but it is probably considered "too cruel".
    No one is personally responsible to punish violators, and if there was the one, it would be very dangerous work. The smokers get very aggressive when cannot smoke.

    Regarding smoking in transport, I laid on thick a bit (сгустил краски):
    In trains, smoking usually happens "в тамбуре" (some bastards though smoke "в купе" too), but the smoke flows into carriage. Things are worse "в плацкартных вагонах", because they are often overcrowded.
    In buses, only driver and passengers-hooligans smoke. Drivers are worst, because they are 100% smokers, are smoking without breaks, and again, all passengers have to smell it.
    In planes, they smoke in toilets.
    In taxis, with probability of 70%, during your short trip the driver will smoke. Another 30% - driver does not smoke at all, or respectful enough to smoke only when passengers quit.

    Моя инфографика: Курение.jpg — Yandex.Disk
    Договорился о ее размещении в пригородных поездах. ))

    я курил лет 9 потом бросил. Тяжело было бросать, но я ни капли не жалею об этом.
    Хороший дизайн инфографики! Молодец! Только, к сожалению, этого не вбить в головы курильщиков.

    Я тут ехал как-то на общественном транспорте и с нами сравнялся автомобиль, в салоне которого сидели 3 детей, примерный возраст от 4-7 лет, вместе с родителями и "папаша" при этом курил сигарету (окна в салоне были закрыты)

    Как в автомобиле можно дышать этой гадостью без коричневого пакета - вообще ума не приложу.

    Дизайн тоже оценил, но там написано "табычный дым"?

    According to the new legislative amendments:
    - smoking in the trains will be almost prohibited in future (in Russia of course),
    - a little bit earlier any advertisement, related to tobacco industry, and smoking in public place will be prohibited.

    As I can predict (according to the analysis of the legislator's will and his general line in that sphere) tough fines for violations shall follow soon.

    So smoking folk in Russia will have a range of new reason for healthy life )))

    1. А с другой стороны, зачем спасать людей? Они что, все белые и пушистые?
    2. И как будет осуществляться естественный отбор, если не будет вредных привычек? А без отбора мы совсем деградируем.

    Да, самоочищаться в своём сознании после нелёгких 15-20 лет русским необходимо. Ведь табак, наркотики и пьянство — при «благоприятных» условиях это будет покруче любой бомбы или армии.

    Кстати, знаете кто до этого впервые додумался? Англичане! См. опиумные войны в Китае. Её Величество — это у нас главный наркобарон в мире.

    А Вы посмотрите для ясности в ютубе, как некурящие спортивные кавказцы бросают борцовскими приёмами девушек через голову. После этого может прийти новый взгляд на курение, на некурящих праведников и т.д.

    Nevertheless smoking people and people with other bad habits (mentioned above) are our compatriots. And if these habits are dangerous for society, society and goverment have to find way to shield innocent people from bad consequences of such "habits".

    I don't care about influence of cigarette smoke on my own entity (as a man who used to smoke for a long time), but others people really suffer from passive smoking.

    So I eagerly look forward to the reduction of public smoking!

    Надо задавить не курильщиков (это больные люди), а производителей сигарет. А у нас для них льготы (если сравнивать с остальным миром). Они формируют бюджеты. Они являются крупными игроками. Пробовали что-нибудь продать табачной компании? Они ведут себя как господа: диктуют условия. Если не выполняется хоть буковка, то посылают сразу, не взирая на убытки поставщиков. Я имею в виду Филипп Морисс Ижора и т.д.

    I don't remember what is going to happen with manufacturers, but retailers rules are going to be many times stricter.

    So we are following in right direction, Comrades ))

    According to the book How to Quit without Feeling S**t
    for most people it's next to impossible to quit an addiction, e.g. tobacco, at least in GB. The only reliable way to quit a strong addiction without relapses is not to acquire it .
