The number of 24-hour shops will be optimized in Mogilev region

The number of twenty-four-hour shops will be optimized in Mogilev region. The respective decision was made at today’s sitting of Mogilev region executive committee dedicated to the matters of crime and alcoholism prevention.

So far there have been 130 shops with prolonged working hours and 24 shops working twenty-four hours in Mogilev region. It’s much more than in other regions of the republic. Alcoholic drinks make up the major part of sales during a night time; besides, 24-hour shops are the place where antisocial people gather. Within January – June ten crimes were committed near such shops, and 910 reports of infractions, hooliganism and drinking alcohol in public places were drawn up. During the respective period 200 applications from citizens requesting to close those shops were sent to the local authorities.

At the same time it’s not enough just to prohibit 24-hour shops; it may have a boomerang effect, Petr Rudnik considers. Decisions must be made deliberately. Naturally, there is no need in a plenty of 24-hour shops. Thus, some of them must be closed; the rest ones must be relocated to prevent any disturbance and discomfort for population. Besides, respective decisions on restricting working hours for selling alcoholic drinks must be made.

Problems of alcoholization of Mogilev region population and increase in crime rate (especially growth in number of misdemeanors in the field of marital and family relations) take root. First of all, it’s lack of measures for preventing hard drinking and committing crimes in a state of alcoholic intoxication.
