The alcoholic products market: actual problems, regulation, litigation

The alcohol market occupies a leading position among the other branches of the food sector in Russia, bringing considerable income into the state budget. During the years 2012-2014, as a result of a sharp increase in excise rates on alcoholic beverages, and the general deterioration of the economic situation, retail sales of alcohol in Russia decreased by almost one quarter, due to outflow of consumers to the illegal sector. In this regard, the Federal Service for the Regulation of the Alcohol Market in Russia has taken a number of measures, which in 2015, were able to halt the decline in retail sales of alcoholic beverages
