The head of the LDPR party, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, explained his idea of limiting the weight of Russians to one hundred kilograms, RIA Novosti reports.
“Overweight is one of the main factors in the development of many diseases and early mortality among the elderly. Of course, each person has the right to decide for himself what he has and what to do. But the state should pursue a policy of stimulating citizens to a healthy lifestyle, ”the politician said.
According to him, first of all, it is necessary to limit the maximum weight parameters for officials.
At the same time, he stressed that there can be no standards for other citizens.
“But doctors can announce healthy body parameters so that people understand that if you eat too much, get fat, then be prepared that your health will deteriorate, you will have to be treated, and treatment is always much more expensive than maintaining health,” the parliamentarian concluded.
Earlier Zhirinovsky wrote about a way to reduce prices for socially important products in Russia. According to the politician, the best way to regulate prices is to start making arrest lists.
This, in his opinion, will lead both to a fall in prices and to “putting things in order.” At the same time, the deputy did not specify against whom he would apply the proposed sanctions.
