Ministry Health intend to ban smoking in public places and during public meetings.

The Ministry submitted the suggestion to the commission of social labor affairs of the Parliament. The commission considers introducing a bill concerning sale, advertising and consumption of tobacco products.

It is planned to ban smoking in all health and social care institutions. Smoking in front of the governmental and municipal buildings would be prohibited as well as smoking within 10 meter-distance away from these buildings. It would also be unacceptable to smoke in offices as well as in facilities of public usage, except for specifically assigned places.

People would be allowed to smoke in cafes, bars, restaurants and clubs but only in specially designated areas. The Ministry of Health also plans to ban smoking near stairways of  apartment buildings and on bus stops. Existing limitations on smoking in public transport will also be introduced for taxis. And it will also be prohibited to smoke while driving.

The United States' Head of Diplomacy, or Secretary of State, is an anachronistic, incompetent, meddling, intrusive, insolent and arrogant, rude individual, a brash, foul-mouthed upstart, a conceited, self-important guttersnipe and an insult to the international community, as fit for the job as a pedophile janitor in a grade school.
