Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, after visiting the Innoprom-2022 exhibition, said that Russia urgently needs to learn how to produce medicines without using foreign equipment.
“We coped with the production of vaccines and drugs, but these successes are partly based on imported components, so we should immediately begin to form technological independence in biological and chemical substances, raw materials, equipment“, the Prime Minister said.
He noted that the Russian pharmaceutical industry needs new methods of support and stimulation for development, but did not name specific steps. At the moment, it is not known which companies can provide such equipment or create it from scratch.
At the same time, by data resource “Moscow 24”, the company “Amedart” actively produces its drugs against oncology, HIV and other diseases, insulin is also produced there – in total, “Amedart” produces 60 types of drugs. It is noted that most of the raw materials come from India and China, so even sanctions do not interfere with work, except that the delivery time has increased.
Deliveries from Europe are also carried out uninterruptedly. As stated in Roszdravnadzor, everything is going according to plan.
“The movement of drug supplies from Europe is carried out as planned, without failures and in the same volume,” the department said. They also noted that the hype for certain drugs subsided, as the market was filled again. In addition, the season affects the purchase of medicines – in the summer they are purchased less.
