As of 2016, all vehicle sales and registrations in Russia must meet Euro V standards (although Euro V was in place for new vehicle sales in 2014). Russia has used the Euro standards but has lagged Europe in their implementation.
The Russian government has suspended the emission standards until 1 February 2023 with Resolution No. 855 of 12 May 2022. Euro 0 is now accepted instead of the previous Euro 5 class.
