The State Duma forced Sberbank and OZON to refuse to sell Ukrainian goods

Russia has stopped selling Ukrainian goods in markets. This was stated by State Duma deputy Dmitry Gusev, meeting with representatives of marketplaces. He noted that the deputies’ request was implemented “voluntarily and unilaterally”.

I want to thank all marketplace companies very much for responding to the request of State Duma deputies to cancel trading in Ukrainian goods on their sites two weeks ago,” said Gusev at the beginning of the meeting of parliamentarians with representatives of Yandex Market, Ozon, SberMarket, Avito and Wildberries.

Baz’s source on one of the marketplaces said that at the moment the ban on his platform applies only to goods of the Khortytsya and Roshen brands.

According to Gusev, part of the profits from the sale of Ukrainian goods went to finance the Ukrainian army, including the purchase of bullets and grenades. He thanked the companies for refusing to sell Ukrainian goods and noted that this decision would save the lives of Russian citizens.

Ozone declined to comment directly on the ban information. Market representatives noted that the site “does not allow the sale of goods if their appearance or content includes accessories or symbols, the display of which is prohibited by law in Russia.” Automated moderation based on machine learning helps to get rid of such products. According to the company, this issue does not require additional legislative regulations.
