Number of Russian women smokers has doubled since Soviet collapse
Date:1/28/2008

ion was made worse by aggressive industry lobbying to weaken tobacco control legislation.

The fact that the TTCs have managed to drive up male smoking rates from already high levels is incredibly alarming because at this stage of the epidemic we would expect male smoking rates to be declining.

There is already a major demographic crisis in Russia and smoking, which already accounts for nearly half of male deaths, is making this far worse.

The smoking epidemic in women is at a much earlier stage, but with this rapid increase, is set to catch up fast.

The Russian government needs to wake up to the fact that cigarettes kill one in every two smokers, and unless it takes action urgently, millions more Russians will die from tobacco.

The study used data on more than 7,000 individuals collected in 10 rounds between 1992 and 2003 as part of the Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey.

The findings highlighted that the largest increase in smoking rates has been amongst the least educated, markedly so amongst women.

In a signal that the Russian government may finally be taking action on the tobacco epidemic on the 10th January 2008 it adopted a draft law on joining the World Health Organizations Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). The draft law now goes to the State Duma.
