On July 31, 2020, Russian Federation President, Vladimir Putin, approved new amendments to the Tobacco Control Law that were initiated by Russia's Parliament. The main thrust of the new amendments is to unify the regulation of tobacco and other nicotine products. While unification of regulation is logical and while the amendments do acknowledge that there are different types of technologies involved, they are all treated in the same manner as tobacco, despite the fact that some technologies likely have less risky health effects.
