MOSCOW, July 28. /TASS/. Russian Ministry of Healthcare sees no need in expanding the list of drugs authorized for sales in conventional stores, rather in drugstores, Minister of Healthcare Veronika Skvortsova said on Tuesday. "We have no plans of expanding the list," the minister said.
"We actually have one of the highest indicators from the standpoint of territorial accessibility of drugs. It is 2.5-3 times higher than in major European nations, let alone the United States," the minister said. "We have no need to place drugs in sales outlets," Skvortsova said.
