The authorities of the Donetsk region, in eastern Ukraine, have approved this Monday the prohibition of the sale of alcoholic beverages in order to “guarantee public safety and order” in the areas that still remain under the control of the Ukrainian government. .

The Ukrainian government has implemented this measure under the umbrella of martial law that governs the country in the context of the war, which began at the end of February by order of the Russian president, Vladimir Putin.

As reported by the Donetsk Regional State Administration, “trade with alcoholic beverages and substances produced on the basis of alcohol” is prohibited, with the exception of those approved drugs.

“Patrols will also be organized in the territory of the region to monitor compliance with the ban on alcohol trade,” the regional authorities explained in a statement.
