Between January and June 2017, Russia imported 238.5 bln RUB worth of ready-made drugs (free circulation prices), which is 8.1% higher in monetary terms.

In physical terms, Russia import 946.1 mln units of ready-made drugs, which is 6% higher than that of 2016. In June, the increase in the import was only 1% if calculated in units due to the decrease in consumer packages.

While the in-bulk import has grown by 9.2% in physical terms, it amounts to 2.2 bln MDUs, that is why the total import dynamics are -1%.
