MOSCOW, August 5. /TASS/. The Kremlin is not considering any ban on the state purchases of foreign condoms, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.
"The Kremlin did not think about that," the spokesman said, commenting on the question about whether the presidential administration was supporting the initiative put forward by the Industry and Trade Ministry.
Russia’s Industry and Trade Ministry earlier published a draft resolution envisaging extension of the list of foreign medical items that should be excluded from state purchases. The ministry proposed including in the list X-ray equipment, some dental instruments, artificial heart valves, defibrillators, crutches, walking frames, bandages, tampons, cleaning tissues and condoms.
The last item caused uproar among the Internet community.
