The Russian Ministry of Health has allowed the remote sale of prescription drugs. This will be possible if a similar procedure for such drugs can be successfully launched.

According to RIA News", the Ministry supports at the initial stage the sale of OTC drugs in order to develop technologies and guarantee high-quality and safe medicines to patients. If there is no abuse, there are likely to be online prescription drug groups.

The Ministry of Health hopes that the bill on the remote sale of OTC drugs will be adopted before the end of the year. Starting January 1 2020 years in Russia will begin to produce electronic recipes. The innovation will allow tracking drugs based on labeling.
