Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law extending anti-smoking legislation to vapes, hookahs, and snus. The document was published on the portal of legal information.

Electronic cigarettes and hookahs will now be subject to administrative responsibility for involving minors in the “process of using electronic smoking products.” We are also talking about the violation of the ban on their use in the premises and the demonstration of the process of consumption of electronic smoking products in created and intended for adults “audiovisual works”. We are talking about TV films, video films and theatrical performances.

Smokers will receive medical assistance aimed at stopping the consumption of tobacco and nicotine-containing products.

There will also be a ban on smoking in communal apartments. In addition, the consequences of smoking, as well as the consumption of nicotine-containing substances, will be prescribed in the rights and obligations of citizens.
