Do national regulators enforce rules against entities operating abroad?
The Code and Law do not contain specific rules on prize promotions offered abroad. As a general rule, promotions offered to Russian parties from abroad will be subject to the same treatment as those offered in Russia (in part of any mandatory Russian rules constituting 'public order'). Theoretically, the only sanction which can be applied to foreign prize promotions, run online and violating Russian 'public order', is the blocking of the website through which the violating promotion is run. In practice, we have not heard of practical precedents of such enforcement.
