<b>Churchill and Holmes won't smoke anymore</b> <p>Russian parliament suggested penalties for showing tobacco products and the process of smoking in new films and plays.</p> <p>Theatre workers were quite surprised by the news. In order not to pay fines they are planning to change some scenes. And in cases when a cigarette is a part of the artistic conception they will use electronic cigarettes. </p> <p>Though many feel indignation at the situation: how on earth one can "take away" pipe or cigar from such characters as Sherlock Holmes or Winston Churchill...</p> <p>Penalties will not be applied only to films and plays. Radio and TV shows, concerts, panel games etc. will be also under strict control. <div style="text-align:center"><img src="/img_news/churchill_holmes.jpg" style="border:0;width:461px;height:336px" alt="Churchill and Holmes won't smoke anymore" /></div>
