Veterinary API Import to Russia (First Half of 2020)
Between January and June 2020, Russia imported 1.17 bln RUB worth of veterinary APIs (customs clearance and VAT included), which is monetary terms (rubles) 7% lower than in 2019. The dynamics in physical terms (kilograms) are -25%, with the volume of 412 tons.
Dramatic changes in the demand for ready-made drugs did not cause the negative dynamics in both monetary and physical terms; the manufacturers have been using the stocks replenished at the end of 2019, when the dynamics were +70% in physical and +66% in monetary terms.
The import line has expanded from 60 to 78 INNs, with Russia stopping the import of 10 and starting the import of 28 new INNs.

Tylosinum is imported to Russia from Bulgaria (57% of the total volume in monetary terms) and China (43%). China is also the only country that imports Tiamulinum to Russia.
