Minsk regional government lifts ban on beer sales at public transport stops
The Minsk Regional Executive Committee has lifted its ban on retail sales of beer and other beverages with a low alcohol content at public transport stops.
The regional government issued a directive to this effect on May 11, but it has not yet taken effect. The directive restricts the sales to retail outlets with a trading floor.
Anatol Shumchanka, leader of the Perspektyva small business association that had pushed for the removal of the ban, told
