Usmanov and Rostech’s structures to develop mandatory marking for goods
The system may be introduced already in 2024.
According to Kommersant, the government decided to develop a system for marking all goods sold in Russia. This will be done to combat counterfeiting. The system will be introduced in 2024; to avoid budget expenditures in its creation, a scheme of public-private partnership will be organized.
Center for Advanced Technology Development (CATD) is most likely to be assigned the creation of the system. The CATD is controlled by Alisher Usmanov’s USM Holdings, Rostech State Corporation, and Aleksandr Galitsky’s Almaz Capital Partners.
The CATD is already developing a system of tobacco and footwear marking. Now the company may be entrusted the organization of data storage and processing centers, as well as system maintenance. In this case, the CATD will receive income from producers and importers of goods.
In such a way, Russia can become the first country in the world to fully control all commodity business operations along with retail sales and taxation.
There has been no official confirmation of this information. Center for Advanced Technology Development, USM Holdings, Rostech, and the government have refused to comment on the project.

Viktor Trutnev, ex-Head of the Moscow Criminal Investigation Department, has finished his career ‘in style’ – he went to jail. The Moscow Garrison Military Court has recently detained the retired general for the duration of the investigation. The former police commander is accused of mediation in bribery and bribe extortion. Trutnev was turned in by his former accomplices – FSB officers trying to extort 3 million rubles ($52.3 thousand) from the Director of Snegirev Research Technological Institute in exchange for covering up violations identified at the enterprise.
