The measures taken by Roszdravnadzor in 2017 allowed to withdraw 915 batches of medicinal products with substandard quality, which is 0.34% of the total number of batches released into circulation in that year.
This was announced by Alexander Petrov, a deputy of State Duma, at the meeting of the Board of Roszdravnadzor. The State Duma supported the draft law on online sales, but the discussion on prescription drugs was not over.
