 Hroisman announces launch of supplies of affordable Western medicines in Ukraine

Drugs produced in the EU, U.S., Canada, and other Western countries will be imported in Ukraine without restrictions.

Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Hroisman said at the Cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Censor.NET correspondent reports.

According to him, this became possible due to the appropriate law passed by the parliament yesterday.

"These drugs will be affordable as they will not be overcharged by lobbyists deciding which medicines to import in Ukraine and which not," he said.
