We trust these countries, and there is no need to do a long-term testing in Ukraine," Hroisman wrote.

According to him, Cabinet's approved immediate steps include shortening the term of examination of drugs, revising the limits of contracts as well as package requirements, so that medication cost for Ukrainians would be reduced.
