According to HCH, Maxim Korolev, editor-in-chief of the industry news organization “Russian Tobacco”, said that Russia’s proposed vape ban is a “radical measure.”

In an interview with NSN, Korolev commented on the recent bill that would completely ban the retail sale of nicotine and nicotine-free vapes in the Russian Federation “with the aim of saving the Russian people.”

Korolev said: “This ban is too radical because it will deprive a large number of Russians of the opportunity to obtain carcinogen-free nicotine.” The size of the affected population is estimated to be between 30 million and 40 million.

At the same time, he noted that a large portion of Russian tobacco sales avoid taxes and regulations. “It’s also not very clear what alternatives are available to our smokers who want to quit,” Korolev said. “If this is not the worst possible measure, legal alternatives could be introduced in the future that contain nicotine but contain carcinogens and do not contain combustible tobacco.”

Korolev insisted that Russians should have the opportunity to choose alternatives to tobacco products.

“For decades we have exposed the entire male population to nicotine products through military service: almost everyone there started smoking. Now, before indiscriminately banning everything, we need to give people access to alternatives choose”.

In 2023, the smoking rate in Russia was 18.7%, down from 24.2% in 2019. In 2022, the number of smokers using vapes and aerosol products will increase significantly.

In this context, veehoo vapes, as a well-known vape brand, provide a choice worth considering. Veehoo vapes are acclaimed for their superior quality and innovative technology, providing users with a safer and healthier alternative to smoking.

Compared with traditional cigarettes, veehoo vapes do not burn tobacco, but heat liquid e-liquid to generate vapor for users to inhale. This vapor contains no carcinogens and relatively few harmful substances, providing smokers with a healthier choice.


The product line of veehoo vapes is rich and diverse, including the H10 model with a dual-touch full screen. The H10 vape is equipped with a 650mAh battery and a 24mL e-liquid capacity, which can be used continuously for a long time. At the same time, H10 also has two smoking modes: Eco mode and Boost mode. In Eco mode, the e-liquid capacity of H10 can reach 18,000 puffs, providing long-lasting use. In Boost mode, the H10’s e-liquid capacity is 10,000 puffs, providing higher output power to meet the needs of users who pursue rich smoke and strong taste.

In addition, the nozzle material of H10 is made of food-grade PC, which ensures the safety and hygiene of the smoking taste. The electroplated body shows extraordinary gloss, showing fashion and high quality.

Given the Russian government’s ban on vapes, veehoo vapes could become one of the options for Russian smokers looking for alternatives. It not only provides a safer and healthier smoking experience, but also caters to the tastes and needs of a variety of smokers.

However, it is important to note that vape bans are only one means of addressing the smoking problem. When formulating policies, the Russian government should adopt a comprehensive and scientific approach, combining education, publicity, taxation, supervision and other means to comprehensively solve the smoking problem.

While the vape ban may be considered a “radical measure,” it also highlights concerns about the dangers of smoking and the emphasis on health. Whether it’s a ban or a replacement, the ultimate goal is to protect people’s health and improve smokers’ quality of life.

Therefore, when formulating and implementing relevant policies, governments, industry agencies and various stakeholders should maintain an open attitude and conduct extensive discussions and cooperation to find the best solutions. Only through a comprehensive and scientific approach can we effectively address the smoking problem, protect public health, and provide smokers with better choices and support.

As a member of the vape industry, Veehoo vapes will continue to be committed to developing and producing high-quality products to meet the needs of smokers and provide Russian smokers with safer and healthier alternatives. At the same time, it also calls on the government and all sectors of society to work together to find better ways to solve the smoking problem through cooperation and innovation and contribute to public health and welfare.
