“According to Roszdravnadzor, no sustainable shortage of certain drugs has been recorded in the country today.

In addition, the number of medicines put into civilian circulation is also not reduced.

Pharmaceutical organizations of the regions regularly receive medicines of all kinds,” the department noted.

At the same time, Roszdravnadzor indicated that temporary short-term defects in some drugs “may arise due to the search for new logistics routes and delays in the passage of goods across borders.”

“Nevertheless, in order to avoid possible unforeseen problems with drug supply to patients, it was decided to hold proactive meetings of the regulatory authority with all participants in the pharmaceutical market on a regular basis,” the press service said.

Earlier, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said that retail prices for essential goods and medicines should be constantly monitored in the Russian regions.
