This was stated by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin at a meeting with deputy prime ministers.

Mishustin noted that due to the anti-Russian restrictions of the West, many supply chains have been disrupted.

"In order for drug manufacturers to be able to bring them faster to the domestic market, the government will extend the use of a number of simplified procedures until the end of next year," TASS quoted him as saying.

He clarified that, among other things, this applies to the registration of analogues of drugs already presented on the Russian market, as well as the issuance of permits for the import of original drugs, the inscriptions on which are made in foreign languages, provided that "when sold on the packages there will be labels with translation into Russian."

In April, the Cabinet of Ministers extended the simplified procedure for admission to Russian universities of Russian students expelled abroad.
