Where tobacco advertising is prohibited

Interestingly, despite the active fight against smoking around the world, according to data for 2014, a complete ban on tobacco advertising was introduced in a fairly small number of countries: in Russia, Turkey, Iran, Brazil and a number of other (small) countries of Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. And from the countries of the generalized West, tobacco advertising is prohibited only in Spain.

In most European countries (except Switzerland, where there are no bans), there are restrictions only for direct advertising and some types of indirect advertising. At the same time, in the United States, there are no restrictions on advertising of tobacco products, as well as in Japan and South Korea (well, and many, many other countries). And the Democratic Republic of the Congo is the only country in the world where tobacco advertising is banned only on television, radio and in print.
