Big Tobacco Moves More Massively into the Russian Marketplace – No Fear of Russian Lung Cance

Big tobacco continues to expand its global spreading of death and cancer, this time with Phillip Morris and Japan Tobacco making major new investments in Russian tobacco sales. A cynic might think big tobacco does not fear increases in lung cancer litigation in Russia. Besides, even if lung cancer litigation does surge in Russia in 30 years, the profits already will be long gone. And, the potential asbestos defendants there (such as Uralbest) probably will follow the US model of doing very little to force the lung cancer loss onto big tobacco.
