In Russia, due to logistics problems and high demand, there may be temporary delays in the delivery of the necessary amount of medicines to pharmacies, according to the statement made by the press service of Roszdravnadzor on Wednesday, January 11, in which the agency stresses that distributors are taking the necessary measures.

“The increased demand for certain medicines may lead to temporary delays in the delivery of the necessary amount of drugs to pharmacies due to logistical problems of suppliers and manufacturers. At the same time, distributors are taking measures to change logistics routes and accelerate delivery of medicines to pharmacies,” the message reads.

Roszdravnadzor added that fraudsters might take advantage of the temporary shortage of drugs. They offer to deliver the right medicine for an advance payment of 50% or 100% of the cost, providing no warranties to the buyer.
