“I told them now I’ll beat off,” – said Chumak.
Bill No. 2089 on increasing the availability of medicines for citizens was represented by the deputies of the faction “the Voice” Olga Stefanyshyna and Alexander Ustinov.
According to Stefanishina, the bill allows the import of medicines to Ukraine from countries where they are cheaper, and cancels the so-called “evergreen patents”, which in Ukraine held a monopoly.
According to the Deputy, Chumak, “ordered the distributors and pharmaceutical manufacturers to “blame” the bill”, and the Committee did not support it.
In the “Voice” believe that “those who for years enormous profits thanks to this state of Affairs, the deputies did not like it and they moved on to direct threats.”
The reaction of Stefanishina: “on the one hand, it’s really scary when a person directly expresses threats. On the other hand, I know exactly what corn came Sasha and for those who want to keep drug prices high.
Perhaps that is why the Committee will recommend the Parliament to send our bill back for revision – that is, in the junk.”
