Russia to ban flavored e-cigarettes in 2024: report


According to a report from the Russian newspaper “News Report” on August 22nd, Russia will ban the sale of flavored e-cigarettes starting March 1, 2024. Additionally, the Russian Ministry of Health has prepared a list of additives that are prohibited.

The Ministry of Health has reportedly prepared a list that includes various flavorings believed to enhance the appeal of nicotine e-liquids. These flavorings include food flavorings such as fruits, vegetables, vanilla, spices, ginger, and cinnamon, as well as sweeteners like corn syrup, honey, stevia, and maple syrup. Although these flavorings are widely used in food products, the Ministry of Health believes they may increase the attractiveness of e-cigarettes to young people.

According to reports, the list is scheduled to take effect on March 1, 2024.

According to the Russian Nicotine Alliance, currently, the list is being reviewed by the Russian Tobacco Experts Committee, and once the review is complete, it will be handed over to the national government authorities for decision-making.
