Significance. The article presents results of the Russian component of the international project "Prevention of Alcoholism and Drug Addiction among Youth" carried out in 2012-2013 with the participation of 12 municipalities of ten European countries within the "Northern dimension" Partnership. The study identified peculiar features of tobacco consumption prevalence among teenaged school children and role of some social factors and presented a comparative analysis of the results received in the cities of Sovetsk and Bagrationovsk of the Kaliningrad region in comparison with data from other cities of the European countries which took part in the study.

Purpose: to study prevalence of tobacco consumption among teenaged school children of 15-16 years in the cities of Sovetsk and Bagrationovsk of the Kaliningrad region.

Methods: analytical, sociological, mathematical statistics.

Results. Prevalence of tobacco consumption among school children in the Kaliningrad region was analyzed using "Life and living conditions of youth in Europe" (ADPY 2013) questionnaire. The questionnaire included questions of prevalence of tobacco consumption and various social factors. The obtained data were compared with results of the cities of the European countries which took part in the study.

Conclusion. The Russian school children (in the cities of Sovetsk and Bagrationovsk of the Kaliningrad region) reliably less and more rarely use tobacco than their age peers in other cities participating in the study.

Scope of application. The obtained data can be used for further development of preventive activities at the regional level.
