This year, cigarettes can become very expensive in Russia. This is due to increased excise taxes and the introduction of marking. This will affect not only ordinary tobacco, but also electronic smoking mixtures.

As the "Russian newspaper", the increase can reach 25%. Tobacco companies had to spend money on equipment for applying a digital code to each pack, which they began to demand from last year and these costs will affect the price.

From January 1, 2020, excise taxes increased. For cigarettes and heating tobacco, growth was 4%, and for electronic nicotine delivery systems - by 4,2%. The cost of a legal pack of cigarettes now is 115 rubles, more than half of them go to pay taxes.
