Kyiv City Council's decision to limit alcohol sales via retail outlets at night has come into force.

The ban will be in effect from 23:00 to 10:00 local time in the morning, the Ukrainian TV news service TSN has said.

The ban does not apply to restaurants, cafes, bars, and catering establishments. Those who violate the decision will be fined.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Kyiv City Council on September 27 once again introduced limitations on the sale of alcohol via retail outlets at night.

Kyiv City Council instructed its industry and entrepreneurship department to inform private businessmen and owners of retail outlets about this decision.

The city council has also recommended the National Police step up measures to monitor compliance with the requirements of the relevant legislation.
