This review presents data on the current propolis research in Russia. The chemical composition, color, aroma and appearance of propolis are influenced by natural and climatic factors, the collection region and the originality of the flora in the collection place. Within Russia, organoleptic, physicochemical and chemical properties of propolis vary considerably. The article provides information on methods for assessing its quality. Propolis is widely used in folk and alternative branches of medicine in Russia. Its antioxidant and antimicrobial properties, as well as the possibility of using extracts on its basis for gastric ulcer, diabetes, periodontitis, radiation disease, gynecological diseases, tuberculosis, anemia, myocardial ischemia and cerebral ischemia, have been established. Propolis is used in the food industry, cosmetology, agriculture and veterinary medicine.

Key words: Antibacterial, Antioxidant, Diabetes, Flavonoids, Gastric ulcer, Propolis.
