Alcohol was sold under the counter on Sobriety Day in Babruisk


A Sobriety Day was organized in Babruisk on February 19. It was impossible to buy alcoholic beverages anywhere; however, shops were crowed with half-conscious drunkards in the evening as usual. Drunkards kept asking passers-by for another 100 roubles to buy a bit more.

An ERB reporter did not manage to find out where the people had managed to buy alcohol on Sobriety Day.

“Some sales-assistants take pity on people and sell alcohol under the counter. Such people may simply die without a drink – they may have a heart attack”, - said a man waiting in the wine department of a local shop to the ERB reporter.
