The changing future and a new vocabulary for the tobacco.... 19.11.2012
Tobacco is a conservative, traditional sort of consumer market which carries on delivering profits by selling essentially the same products year after year with small tweaks to justify higher prices. Well, not quite.

True Democracy 16.10.2012

Fighting austerity, contraband and anti-smoking campaigns.... 13.06.2012

Patriarch and Cigarettes 11.03.2012
Patriarch Kirill just keeps on giving reasons to doubt his holiness. Now a glimpse is caught of a watch that costs an equivalent of the annual income of a well-off member of his flock, now he sues lower-ranking clerics to take a flat away from them, now curses silly girls for a harmless prank and drags them to prison. All troubles are on his righteous shoulders… And in the roaring 1990s, the Father Kirill-controlled department of the Moscow Patriarchate was consolidating the financial power of the church and, as it did so, it shunned not trade in imported tobacco and alcohol. The old story emerged for an insignificant reason, but the church bureaucracy which stood up furiously for the patriarch rushed awkwardly, as always, to defend him and deny not only the Darwinian theory of evolution but also the multiplication table.

The Last Draw 05.05.2010
Hard times are coming in Russia for the tobacco industry. Several laws at once will take effect this year that impose constraints on the operation of the sector. Now this country can hardly be considered one of the most favourable markets for the development of the tobacco industry. The situation is complicated: while in the European countries or the US, although constraints are quite tight there, regulation is carried out within a legal framework and according to clear and comprehensible rules, Russia has as usual decided to follow a certain special path.
