«We have a certain belief was formed that foreign pill works better than the Russian. Unfortunately, not unfounded. A number of manufacturers did not act very nicely. It is necessary to restore order in the pharmaceutical market. We now have approximately 70% of drugs in terms of value acquired from abroad. And only 30% in the country. But the names, the situation is different. We have 60% of items purchased inside the country, and only 40% from abroad. And if you take the list of vital and essential medicinal products, there is already 85% sold in the country,» said the Prime Minister.

So you need to bring to this market order, then pharmacies will be a normal cheap Russian drugs are not worse than foreign», — concluded the head of the Russian government.
