A RATEK representative said that he did not know a single seller who received these documents to sell the iPhone 14.
According to RBC, there is also no information on the issuance of documents for new iPhone models in the Unified Register of Notifications of the EAEU. M.Video said they plan to receive the relevant documents:
We believe that even within the framework of the current situation, goods must enter our stores in compliance with all requirements of the current legislation, payment of the necessary duties and taxes,” he added. — All products entering the sale are original, have supporting documents and pass the necessary customs procedures.
At the moment, Ozon and Yandex.Market are already selling the iPhone 14. Other marketplaces and chain stores will start selling in October.
