Reference News Network reported on February 23rd According to the website of Russia’s Communist Youth League Pravda on February 21, Vladimir Zhilinovsky, chairman of the Russian Liberal Democratic Party, said in an interview with the Communist Youth League Pravda radio that Russia’s obesity problem should be solved.
Zhilinowski said: “You know, an extremely obese person is a big expense for the country. He needs treatment and a special diet. People of normal weight do not need additional state expenses.
I said as early as 2014: set 80 kilograms as the standard. I’m not saying who to fire. I used to be 103 kilograms, but now I am 95 kilograms.
Zhilinowski suggested starting with officials to solve this problem.
He believes that the weight of officials should not exceed 100 kilograms.
The chairman of the Liberal Democratic Party said, “Why do you eat so much? Your diabetes is no longer type 2, but type 1. This is our idea – give advice to citizens.
Because they just don’t want to go on a diet and eat a lot of sweets and flour products.” He said that restrictions must be set on such citizens.
He recalled that he met many obese patients in New York, and said that these people were simply “unbearable”.
According to the report, Zhilinowski said that this is only a proposal at present, which is of the same nature as advocating quitting smoking.
Previously, doctor and TV host Alexander Miasnikov said that more than 20 million people worldwide died of obesity-related problems a year.
According to a Russian News Agency Moscow on February 22, Zhilinovsky wrote on his personal social platform: “Obesity is one of the main factors that lead to the onset and premature death of the elderly.
Of course, everyone has the right to decide what to eat and what to eat. But the state should pursue policies that encourage citizens to choose healthy lifestyles.”
One way to implement the policy is to limit the weight of officials, Zhilinowski said.
He said: “If you want to stay in the state organ, please keep in shape. If you can’t self-discipline, you have to ask you to find another way.
