Azerbaijan The prices of imported tobacco products have increased approximately 15-30-75% since last reporting (referring mainly to different price of cigarettes). The prices of imported tobacco products have declined approximately 10-20-40% since last reporting. The prices of tobacco products have increased approximately twice since last reporting. However, this trend is not due to any specific tobacco control policy. From February to December 2015 the US/AZN exchange rate has changed from 0.78 to 1.55, so the Azerbaijani manat lost half of its value. This was the main reason the prices of tobacco products increased in manats. WHO European Region

Uzbekistan Report not provided Report not provided По оценкам, в 2014 году по сравнению с 2013 годом номинальная розничная цена сигарет с фильтром были повышены на 6% (в среднем с 1,37$ США до 1,46$ США), которое предположительно можно связать с повышением ставки акцизного налога на 30%. В 2015 году номинальная розничная цена сигарет с фильтром сохранилась почти на том же уровне в среднем 1,45$ США, т.к. ставка акцизного налога была незначительно увеличена на 10%. На 2014 год ставка акцизного налога на сигареты без фильтра не была увеличена. Несмотря н это, в 2014 году номинальная розничная цена сигарет без фильтра была увеличена на 30% (в 2013 г. - 0,32$ США, в 2014 г. - 0,42$ США). В 2015 году было отмечено повышение номинальной розничной цены сигарет без фильтра в среднем до 0,55$ США, что объясняется повышением ставки акцизных налогов на 28%. Таким образом, что повышение цены табачных изделий не всегда связано с повышением ставки акцизных налогов. WHO European Region
