So I just found out - there is actually a recently patented line of the Far-Eastern Russian bees.
The line is called - "Far-Eastern" (Дальневосточная).
Here it is pictured - the actual certificate.

Here is quick blurb about it (google translate it) -

for those who don'tknow the history.. dude showed up on BS, convinced fokes he was a PHD with a whole bunch of special strain's of bees https://russellapiaries.webs.com/breeds.htm took money and then didn't deliver
So wait a minute.
The web site is up and operational.
They offer all kinds of bees.
Looks like people are still in business.
Have they not been caught yet?

On topic - without hard looking I doubt the "patented" Russians are available in the US.
They are not well known in Russia as it is.
Some folks are testing them - how I found out.

My question which sounds like allot of BS how are they able to put a genome patent to begin with? What's next? Patent on a Human 😂😂😂😂😂😂
One needs not to go to Russia for the answers. :)
In fact, they just learn this "bee copyright" business from the others.
Look closer to home, actually.

The "Saskatraz stock is Patented and Trademarked" just as well
Ask them how it all works.

Do you know where there are actual pure Russian, Caucasian Bees anymore? I see allot of talk about the russians but I don't see where you can get them other than hybrids.
Why, go to the original sources and look there.
These are subjects discussed to the death by now.

Of course, I assume you know that while the Caucasians could be kinda-sorta pure (just due to the historic context), the Russian are very much recently formed hybrids as it is.
Look it up.
