Abstract

This paper summarizes prevalence and consequences, recent policies, prevention and cessation efforts, recent developmental work focus groups, and speculation about the current status of cigarette smoking in the Russian Federation. Unique aspects of modern Russian society are suggested as leading to relatively high prevalence internationally of smoking among Russian males. Similar factors may lead to deflated smoking cessation attempt and quit rates. We believe that the future of tobacco control in Russia is close, but that it will involve raising the prices of tobacco products, enforcing no tobacco use policies among minors, ratification of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control FCTC and implementation of evidenced-based tobacco use prevention and cessation programs.
