ITAR-TASS reports that Kemerovo Oblast deputies have passed in the first reading legislation that would ban smoking at all public transportation stops and a surrounding area of 15 meters, as well as in outdoor areas during a cultural event.

The legislators told TASS that the law was intended to protect the health of non-smokers, particularly children. “We need to protect kids and non-smokers from the dangerous consequences of smoking,” said Irina Sinitsyna, head of the region’s committee on public health and social welfare.
