In Georgia and Hungary, some pharmaceuticals cost twice as little as in Ukraine, Patients of Ukraine charity fund director Olha Stefanyshyn said on TV May 16, UNN reports.
The pharmaceutical mafia in Ukraine still controls the drugs prices, she said.
Premier Grojsman urged Rada to pass next week the bill simplifying registration procedures for imported pharmaceuticals.
In line with the bill, drugs manufactured and registered in USA, Canada, Japan and EU should be sold in Ukraine without any licensing.
The bill will create a real competition on the Ukraine’s market of pharmaceuticals, Grojsman said.
