    April 23, TORONTO - On April 22, 2021, the Canada Eurasia Russia Business Association hosted over 80 participants at the Canada-Russia Mining Working Group. The event was held as part of the 2021 CERBA Eurasia Mining Series. 

    Among the working group participants were Evgeny Tanin, Deputy Director of Geology Policy and Regulation of the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources, who discussed subsoil code legislation issues and developments; Viktor Snezhko & Vladimir Khalenev of the Russian Geological Research Institute (VSEGEI), who informed regarding the accounting and monitoring procedures of speculative mineral resources in the Russian Federation; Mikhail Zheleznyak of the Melnikov Permafrost Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences, and Dr. Lukas Arenson, President of the Canadian Permafrost Association, who discussed possible avenues of Canada-Russia cooperation in permafrost studies, permafrost hydrology, and engineering geology. 

    The event was positively received by the participants and contributed to the deepening of the Canada-Russia cooperation in the mining sphere.

    “I left with a sense of commonality; I found the Russian businesses challenges and initiatives mirrored those in Saskatchewan.  The networking session after the event allowed me to connect with persons I would have never met – it allowed me to build contacts across the world with the similar resource developments in potash, uranium, diamonds, and oil." – commented Eric Anderson, Executive Director of the Saskatchewan Industrial and Mining Suppliers Association (SIMSA).

    The CERBA Mining Series are sponsored by CERBA members: Kinross Gold, Metalloinvest, B2Gold, and Cameco

    Dear CERBA Members and Partners,

    According to the information kindly provided by CERBA Corporate Member – Intermark Relocation, please be informed that in accordance with the governmental decree No. 963-p dated 14 April 2021, citizens and permanent residents of "green listed" countries may enter Russia by direct flights from any green listed country.

    The changes took effect on April 16, 2021.

    What are the changes?

    1. Previously, such nationals were allowed to enter only by direct flights from the country of their citizenship or permanent residence. Now they may enter by flights originating from any green listed country.

    2. Citizens and permanent residents of Belarus may enter Russia by flights from Belarus as well as by flights from green listed countries.

    Intermark comment

    Foreigners from green listed countries with suspended or limited direct flights to Russia (currently the UK, Turkey and Tanzania) may benefit from the change by taking a flight to Russia from another green listed country.

    Kindly pay attention that the "green list" is a formal list approved by the Russian government, which currently includes 29 countries. Belarus is not on the list but its citizens and permanent residents enjoy the same right to enter Russia by air flights.

    The Universe of Pharmaceutical Trademarks in Russia 2021 offers sector participants a comprehensive review of the trademark aspects of the pharmaceutical industry in Russia today – a market that Deloitte valued at almost US$30 billion in a recent study. The report examines the legal foundations for trademark protection in Russia, recent trademark decisions, the strong drive for localization, and the challenging issues of counterfeiting and parallel importation.

    The report includes a range of timely and practicable information, including:

    • An economic overview of the pharmaceutical industry in Russia and the drive to grow the market of locally produced medicines
    • A detailed examination of the legal foundations that underpin trademark protection in Russia
    • A guide to recent decisions by Russia's IP Court and the RF Supreme Arbitration Court, and what these decisions may mean going forward
    • A general overview of counterfeit pharmaceuticals in Russia and their consequences, and ongoing anti-counterfeiting efforts
    • An analysis of the parallel importation of pharmaceuticals in Russia, including the current status of parallel importation and concerns about what its possible legalization could mean for the pharma sector

    “We are very pleased to release the newest edition of this comprehensive paper,” said Aylen. “It’s a contemporary status report on trademark issues in the Russian pharmaceutical industry. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been a market of great challenges and opportunities. Now more than ever, trademark issues are at the very forefront of client success within the Russian pharmaceutical market.”
