According to the study "Global Adult Survey on Tobacco Consumption" (GATS), Russia ranks first in the world in terms of the prevalence of tobacco consumption. A total of 43.9 million Russians smoke, which is 39.1% of the total population. The average Russian smokes 17 cigarettes a day, 18 for men, 13 for women. Every year about 400 thousand Russians die from diseases caused by smoking.

International experience shows that the appearance of shocking images on cigarette packs significantly influenced the change in the perception of smoking by smokers themselves: 78% of them approved the appearance of such warnings, 67% wanted to quit smoking and more than 50% changed their opinion about the health consequences of smoking.

In 2008, Russia joined the World Health Organization Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. According to the provisions of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, each pack and package of tobacco products should contain "health warnings describing the harmful effects of tobacco use." According to the document, the countries that have ratified the Convention are obliged to implement this norm within 3 years.

Since July 2010, the requirements for warnings about the dangers of smoking on tobacco product packages are determined by the Technical Regulations for Tobacco Products, according to which it is possible to change these labels once a year (no more often), as well as install new warning labels.
