Today, our product range includes more than 450 names of medicines in various forms and dosages,' Pharmstandard's press service reported.

There are also no packaging problems at the group's facilities. 'We are not currently experiencing a shortage of cardboard for drug packaging, as we have diversified our supply in advance by expanding the range of cardboard grades we buy for the manufacture of drug packaging, including Russian cardboard.
