Smoking banned on balconies in Russia

Russia has banned smoking on private balconies effective from 1 October 2019. The ban has been implemented as part of a change to fire regulation legislation rather than as a form of health promotion. People found smoking on balconies could face fines of 3,000 rubles rising to 5,000 rubles if the violation causes a fire.
