The Verkhovna Rada adopted Law No. 7313, which restricts the turnover of medicines, the production of which is located on the territory of the Russian Federation or the Republic of Belarus.
This was written by the first deputy head of the Committee on Finance, Tax and Customs Policy Yaroslav Zheleznyak.
The bill proposes to limit the turnover of medicines in Ukraine, the production of which is at least partially located on the territory of the Russian Federation or the Republic of Belarus, which, in turn, will encourage to abandon the supply of goods from these countries around the world.
The Ministry of Health will have the authority to refuse state registration or cancel it for medicines if at least one stage of drug production is carried out on the territory of the Russian Federation or Belarus.
It is also allowed to cancel the state registration of a medicine if the applicant or his representative is directly or indirectly connected with Russian companies. In addition, the draft proposes to provide that for the period of the introduction of martial law in Ukraine, the Cabinet of Ministers, on the recommendation of the Ministry of Health, may temporarily stop the export of medicines in case of failure to meet the needs of the health system of Ukraine in such medicines in full.
