Of the 1.2 billion packs of medicines sold in Ukraine last year, the number of counterfeit products - 2.5 million units. The head of the State Service for Drugs and Drug Supervision Alexei Soloviev reported about it. According to the Head of Civil Service, to solve the problem of counterfeiting is only possible by toughening legislation. As commented Solovyov, all over the world to the problem of counterfeiting of medicines come very strictly. In the U.S., for example, the manufacturer of counterfeit could threaten up to 20 years imprisonment, and even, depending on the scale of production even life imprisonment. In European Union - up to 10 years imprisonment, in China - the punishment up to death.
In Ukraine, he said, the level of responsibility for the falsification or producing of low-quality drugs is limited up to 1500 UAH. The head of the Civil Service stated that the issue of strengthening penalties for unfair "treatment" fellow citizens has remained open. Now Parliament is finalizing a bill that would impose criminal liability for crafts drugs to 8 years imprisonment, as well as increase the penalties to 17 thousand UAH.
