The next sentence:
However, licensed parcels from private parcel companies that have entered into a contract with VO “Vnieshintorg” are admitted.

Sounds like a pretty big loophole to me.

The restrictions on mail to China (see http://pe.usps.com/text/imm/ce_009.htm) are somewhat interesting as well:

The importation of personal articles is limited to those intended for personal use and imported in reasonable quantities. The value of the items contained in each shipment must not exceed RMB (renminbi) 100 yuan and the total value of the shipment received annually by each family may not exceed RMB (renminbi) 800 yuan. However, the following articles are admitted in the quantities/values indicated:
[There follows a table with items such as]
Pocket electronic calculator: 1 per year; The addressee must submit a prior request to Customs.
Magnetic tape: 5 cassettes

Maybe the rules need to be updated?

Re: Russian Federation Bans International Mail Order Items

The bottom line is, a foreign company can not send someone in Russia mail.

Sellers on ebay are mostly individuals, not companies.

If my company sent you mail, it would be illegal.
