    Some clarification on Russian anti-tobacco legislation that took effect this summer.
    Here is quote in Russian from paragraph 16g of new law (this is the only paragraph in the law that possibly discusses e-cigarettes) :
    ЗАПРЕЩЕНО …использование и имитация табачного изделия при производстве других видов товаров, не являющихся табачными изделиями, при оптовой и розничной торговле такими товарами .
    FORBIDS " usage and imitation of tobacco product upon production of other types of merchandise, that are not tobacco products, during wholesale and retail sales of such merchandise."
    Most people interpret this paragraph as forbidding of e-cigarettes that imitate real cigarettes (such as NJOY), but not applicable to any other vaping devices and e-juices.

    That's good - thank you. Is there any news of enforcement, please?

    As far as I know there is no enforcement whatsoever, I read article on popular Russian ecig retailer elcigs.ru,
    they interpreting new law as it completely does not apply to any e-cigarettes and they sell everything same as before.
    Here is the link to the article in Russian:Ан‚и‚аба‡н‹й закон и элек‚€онн‹е сига€е‚‹ €• ElCigs - в‹б€а‚Œ и кƒпи‚Œ элек‚€онн‹е сига€е‚‹
    Also I'm currently not in Russia, but my sister is there and she is buying and using e-cigs all the time and she didn't report any problems.
    As they say in Russia - Суровость российских законов компенсируется необязательностью их исполнения

    or

    Откуда у нас имитации табачных изделий?
    Только Понс и иже с ним попадает.
    Все остальное - имитации фонариков, дым машин для дискотеки, ингаляторов (и то имитация).

    Варя - вообще вольтметр - тестер, генезис без жидкости - прикуриватель (от раскаленной спирали), закрытый защитным колпачком (чтоб не обжигаться)...

    [QUOTE=rolygate;8573288]OK thanks.

    I'm trying to get this page right:

    [link removed - please see next post]

    Rolygate - That link seems to be broken. Do you have an update on the Global Legal Status?

    Особливо про варю)))

    В Канаде бушуют страсти, еще бы, с 10 баксов за пачку сигарет (в среднем) на которую еще накидывают 13% налога с продаж - 7 баксов уходит в налоги, какое правительство захочет Такой доход менять на какую-то сраную 3-х центовую е-сигарету (имею в виду сумму налога). Страсти рассказывают, детьми курящими пугают и стращают банами. Многие уходят в подполье (что круто, жидкость с доставкой на дом в течение 2-х часов после звонка).
