According to a report by the Russian “Izvestia” on August 22, from March 1, 2024, Russia will ban the sale of flavored vapes. Meanwhile, the Russian Ministry of Health has prepared a list of banned additives.
The Ministry of Health has prepared a list of many vaping flavorings that are believed to make nicotine e-liquids more appealing. These vape flavors include food flavors such as fruit, vegetable, vanilla, spice, ginger and cinnamon. And there are sweeteners such as peanut syrup, honey, stevia and maple syrup.
Although these flavors are widely used in food, the Ministry of Health believes they may increase the appeal of vaping to young people.
According to reports, the list will come into effect on March 1, 2024.
According to the Russian Nicotine Union, the vape flavor ban list is currently being considered by the Russian Tobacco Expert Committee. After consideration, it will be handed over to the national government agencies for decision-making.
Some Russian media predict that after September 1, 2023, the price of vapes will rise sharply, with an expected increase of 30%.
The reason for the vape price increase will be the strengthening of the euro and dollar exchange rates, as well as logistical difficulties. The cost of vape devices(vape pens, vape pods, vape mods and others) has risen by 10 percent compared with spring. Because the most popular vaporizer models are imported and purchased in foreign currency.
In addition, customs officials began to examine shipments of nicotine-containing vaping products more closely. Regulatory controls on vapes imports have tightened as laws targeting sales to minors have tightened, market representatives said. Due to fearing product seizures, raids and fines, many vape importers have had to import small quantities of vapes each time.
The Accounts Chamber(AC) of Russian Federation has proposed imposing duties on the import of vaping devices and IQOS. Similar to the import tax for shisha and pipes, the value will be 13%.
In April 2023, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law banning the sale of vapes to persons under the age of 18.
State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said the aim of the law is protecting the health of young people. Additionally, a ban on the sale of flavored vapes will come into effect from March 1, 2024. The restrictions will affect vapes with fruit, vegetable, sweet and vitamin flavors. Additionally, sellers will not be able to sell nicotine vapes. These factors will affect the sales price of vape devices(vape pens, vape pods, vape mods and others).
