Smoking should be unacceptable for a luxury people.
The Cabinet of Ministers prepares smokers an unpleasant surprise.
The government intends to introduce a new “tax” on cheap tobacco products. In the end, a pack of cigarettes can rise in price to 100 hryvnia.
According to experts, only for last year the pack went up by 19 percent. However, this is not the limit.
