MOSCOW, August 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Health Ministry on Friday asked the government to exclude vitamins registered as medicines from the list of goods the import of which has been banned from the EU, the US, Canada, Australia, and Norway.
“Several companies have contacted us on this issue. We have stated our opinion and I think these vitamins will be removed from the list of banned goods shortly,” said Yelena Maximkina, head of the ministry’s department of medicine supply and turnover regulation.
The list mainly includes vitamins registered as dietary supplements and food for diabetics.
On August 14, Vice-Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said, “Proposals on exemptions from the list of banned imports will be ready by tomorrow and they concern sensitive supplies for various social groups as well as products for people with diabetes."
