|The Russian lawyer is ready to protect smokers
The famous Russian lawyer Michael Borschevsky is ready to protect the rights of smokers, and also speaks in supports of handguns legalization in Russia. Borschevsky claimed as there is a high rate of smokers in Russia (according to his estimation, there are 90% of men smokers and 70% of women smokers), they must have the same privileges as nonsmokers. As an example, he cited the situation when a smoker has to go out, because there are no special smoking rooms in edifices. With this, Borschevsky said that he is the inveterate smoker.
According to the lawyer, struggle against smoking has to be carried out by means of assistance, but not ban. Thus, anti tobacco campaign in USA led to the following situation: the amount of smokers teens increased. In Italy, smoking ban in bars and restaurants is ignored.
Also, the lawyer added that Russian people are ready to have handguns for self defense. With this, Borschevsky referred to the experience of Europe, speaking about the idea that Russia is a part of European culture, history, economics.
