The leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia and Duma vice speaker Vladimir Zhirinovsky said the future law on tobacco smoking, which the lower parliament chamber is to discuss on Tuesday in its third and final reading, should be much tougher, adding that excessive eating and sex should also be restricted.
“We need a different formula: smoking is to be banned everywhere but in your own car if you close all the windows and stay there alone as well as in your own apartment if there is nobody else there. Shut all the windows and get yourself poisoned,” Zhirinovsky said during a live interview with Business FM radio.
The bill proposes to ban smoking in government buildings, schools and universities, hospitals, stadiums, restaurants, trains and railway stations and next to metro stations.
“We need eating restrictions. Our people are overfed and too fat. Sex should also be restricted to one time per quarter through issuing licenses, quotas or coupons,” Zhirinovsky added. “People have too much sex, they eat, smoke and drink too much and die 20 years earlier. Everywhere – in Europe, America or Japan - they live longer. Why should we perish?”
