Shipping to Russia
CULTIZM is officially registered with the Russian customs office for FedEx deliveries to private customers. This ensures that orders from CULTIZM up to a merchandise value of 200€ can be shipped tax-free to private customers in Russia. Please bear in mind that this limit includes all merchandise you import from a third country during the period of one month. If the value of the merchandise exceeds 200€ within the period of one month, additional import duties will apply. These are 15% of the imported goods’ value, as prescribed by state law.
Please notice: New custom regulations for St. Petersburg and the area around St. Petersburg: Customers from this area need to pay a brokerage fee of 4000 RUB. In such cases CULTIZM will ship to this area only with German Post ( no brokerage fee ).

- Each order can contain a maximum of 4 different groups of commodities
(for example: Pants, Shoes, Jacket, Shirt)
