Russia smoking ban: What do Muscovites think?

Help

President Vladimir Putin has signed legislation banning smoking in most public places in Russia.

The law will make it illegal to smoke in some public places such as subways and schools from 1 June.

A year later it will come into force in other places including restaurants and cafes.

These Muscovites had mixed feelings about the ban.
