The internet penetration rate in Russia is growing steadily and so are online purchases of content, services, and physical goods. Historically, the low costs of mobile connectivity in Russia coupled with long distances have encouraged mobile purchases. In the meantime, Russia continues its attempts to tighten control over the internet industry and is generating new bills designed to regulate online business at an unprecedented rate.

Join us for a one-hour webinar about the issues that online businesses face in Russia.

Topics will include:

  • Proposed new requirements for e-commerce aggregators
  • Retailers beware: What happens if you create an interface for your Russian-speaking customers?
