The article focuses on the major trends and issues of internet retailing in Russia. Despite the negative trends in the Russian economy, national B2C e-commerce market shows fairly high growth rates. In 2014-2016 online sales increased by 60% while gross retail turnover gained only 7.4%. However, e-commerce share of total retail sales in Russia remains quite low (4%) compared to many European countries (e.g. 8% in France, 9.4% in Germany, 11% in Finland, 15.6% in Great Britain). Issues of e-commerce logistics support constitute one of the main reasons for such development lag.
