World No Tobacco Day


Ukrposhta joined the World No Tobacco Day and spent the day without cigarettes #некурю. Ukrposhta appeals all smokers to get rid of tobacco dependence.


Postmen know that those who want to live happily don’t smoke.


The Head of Ukrposhta, Igor Tkachuk (incidentally, he does not smoke) said: “One of the reasons to quit smoking is that tobacco threatens life and health. A person who smokes at least loses 13.2 years of life. Incidentally the whole Ukrposhta’s management team does not smoke. On this day, we offered all our workers to quit smoking”.


World No Tobacco Day, WNTD is observed around the world every year on May 31. It is intended to encourage a 24-hour period of abstinence from all forms of tobacco consumption around the globe. The day is further intended to draw attention to the widespread prevalence of tobacco use and to negative health effects, which currently lead to nearly 6 million deaths each year worldwide.
