Russia backs away from e-cig ban and towards tax to bolster falling revenues

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has changed government priorities and rather than looking to completely ban the sale of vaping products, the Russian authorities are now considering increased e-cigarette taxes instead to prop up faltering revenues.

The Kremlin will also look to crack down on black market sales and non-payment of duties on vaping and tobacco products as part of this effort.
