The Russian government has legalized parallel imports. It will be possible to import goods into the country without the permission of the copyright holder

he Government of the Russian Federation has legalized the parallel import of certain types of products. This was announced by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, TASS reports.

“The purpose of the mechanism is to satisfy the demand for goods containing the results of intellectual activity. Until now, they could not be sold on the territory of our country without the permission of the copyright holder, ”Mishustin said at a meeting of the presidium of the government commission on improving the stability of the Russian economy under sanctions.

The list of products that can be imported into the Russian Federation as part of parallel imports will be approved by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the head of government said.

“This approach will make it possible to guarantee the supply of goods to Russia, including despite the unfriendly actions of foreign politicians,” Mishustin added.

  1. Putin is doubling down on mafia control of Moskovia and playing right into the hand of the communist Chinese who have made a living stealing patents and re-engineering products. More fake products for the fake country.

  2. Maybe this will convince some of those selfish, greedy, despicable companies still in mafia land to abandon it too. Certainly, by this measure, mafia land should be considered a non-business friendly environment.
