The tobacco company Philip Morris International continues to make money both in Russia and Ukraine, and all the promises to leave the Russian market turned out to be a lie. In the third year of the war, this is clear to everyone, except for officials who “do not notice” that Philip Morris, as an international sponsor of the war, continues to feel completely free in Ukraine and does not face any difficulties because of its position, about tsee telegram channel “Инсайдер UA”.

During the first year of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Philip Morris’ net profit in Russia increased to 48.2 billion rubles, which is 45% more than in 2021, and the budget of the aggressor state received more than $136 million. Philip Morris’ revenue in Russia continues to grow for the third year in a row (RUB 399.9 billion in 2023).

Why does Ukraine continue to turn a blind eye to the actions of the tobacco monopolist in Russia? Are they waiting for Philip Morris to start investing the money earned in Ukraine in Russia?
