Between January and February 2019, Russia imported nearly 1.7 bln RUB worth of pharmaceuticals made in the EEU countries (wholesale prices, VAT included), which is in monetary terms 74.3% higher than that of the same period in 2018. In physical terms, the dynamics are +85.8%, with 42.2 mln units.

Over the period, 11 companies were importing to Russia, against 8 in 2018.
