During a trip to Zhitomir Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman went to the pharmacy.
The corresponding video was published in his Facebook.
“Walking Zhitomir, decided to check the status of medications in the nearest pharmacy”, – said the head of government.
At the pharmacy, talked to the locals. People complained on a small pension and medications. Groisman has promised to increase pensions this year and recalled that from 1 April Ukraine will be free of drugs.
The Ministry of health has compared the prices of similar drugs in 5 countries – Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Latvia. On the basis of the average price per daily dose medications in these countries the government sets a price limit for the drug in Ukraine, as well as the price that fully compensates the state.
