Description The paper deals with the current issue of consumer discrimination from the perspective of the Russia-Ukraine conflict. The subject of the study is the assessment of whether an entrepreneur can completely prohibit or condition access to services to Russian citizens, or whether it can do so against persons supporting the war in Ukraine or Putin's regime. This conduct is assessed in particular from the point of view of illegality under Section 6 of the Consumer Protection Act, which very strictly enjoins the entrepreneur not to discriminate. The paper provides a summary of the realted case law, raising the question whether, in view of the current political developments in Russia, these case law conclusions can continue to stand in the same form.
