Будущее регулирования электронных сигарет в России
Новые регуляции по электронным сигаретам в России включают предложенный налог на жидкость для электронных сигарет и потенциальный запрет на ароматизированные продукты. Translation: New regulations on e-cigarettes in Russia include a proposed tax on e-cigarette liquid and a potential ban on flavored products.

According to a report from the Russian Teacher's Journal on October 8th, restrictions on the use of e-cigarettes are becoming tighter, and there are currently discussions about future regulations. A newly proposed bill that aims to introduce a consumption tax on e-cigarette liquids by 2024 has been submitted to the State Duma. Additionally, a ban on the sale of flavored e-cigarettes may be implemented as early as next spring. While manufacturers believe that these restrictive measures will only encourage the growth of the black market, experts from the Higher School of Economics at the National Research University of Russia (Цессифон) have a different perspective.

Согласно Ларисе Попович, директору Института экономики здравоохранения Национального исследовательского университета Высшая школа экономики, некоторые представители медицинской сферы выступают за снижение вреда. Они считают, что если пациенты не могут бросить курить, то они должны хотя бы перейти на менее вредные продукты, такие как электронные сигареты, которые не сжигают табачные листья и, следовательно, не производят канцерогенные сгорания. В некоторых странах теперь назначают никотиновые альтернативы.

However, experts highlight that e-cigarettes function by heating a liquid and inhaling the resulting aerosols. As a result, the primary concern lies in the challenge of effectively controlling the composition of the vaping solution. The harm caused to users relies on the specific substances added to the heating liquid, including the molecules incorporated into its composition. Certain additives are potentially toxic or allergenic, and in some cases, even act as anesthetics. Therefore, imposing stringent regulations on this market is essential. It is imperative to prohibit the usage of e-cigarette products by minors in order to safeguard their wellbeing.

Согласно доктору Василию Фрасову, медицинскому доктору, потребление табака в западных странах значительно снизилось за последние 30 лет. Курение рассматривается как нежелательное поведение, и производители табака должны преодолеть это социальное изменение. Они решили предложить альтернативные методы доставки никотина и потребления табака, создавая замещающий рынок.

After all, it takes years to fully understand the impact of a new product on health, even if it can be launched within a month. In order to combat nicotine and tobacco substitutes, it is necessary to treat them on par with tobacco products. This could potentially include increasing prices, restricting the use of various flavors, or completely prohibiting the use of flavors in tobacco and e-cigarette products.
