Online sales of Russian alcohol will start in November 2023


An experiment on the online sale of domestic wine will be launched in Moscow and the region from November 1, 2023. It will last until July 31, 2026. This is stated in the bill of the government, with which got acquainted “News”.

Online sales of Russian alcohol will start in November 2023

Drinks can be ordered on the Russian Post website, but delivery will not be fast: the company will start delivering products only a day after order confirmation.

Buyers will need to verify their age: either show their passport to the courier, or use the Unified Identification and Authentication System.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade supported the legal sale of alcohol remotely. The Ministry of Finance thinks that the experiment will contribute to the development of Russian winemaking, as well as change the balance of demand in favor of domestic products. The ministry of health opposed it. Since the deal is non-public, alcohol can fall into the hands of minors, the ministry fears.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade proposed to start this year an experiment on labeling food, strong alcohol and electronics. Market representatives believe that the introduction of labeling is not quite a timely measure. Companies fear huge costs to their industries. New measures can harm both producers and consumers, as they can increase prices, for example, for fish products, by at least 10-20%.

The national labeling system “Honest Sign” has been implemented in Russia since 2018 to combat illegal circulation of goods. The system has already become mandatory for medicines, cigarettes, mineral water, dairy products, some children’s products and a number of other categories.
