The number of production sites manufacturing pharmaceutical substances in Russia has reached 95, having increased by almost 80% between 2015 and 2019, First Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Sergey Tsyb shared during the conference “Pharmaceutical Industry in 2020” on June 17.

In the five-year period between 2015 and 2019, the nomenclature of bioactive substances produced in Russia increased by 60%, and the number of Russian manufacturing sites specializing in pharmaceutical substances by nearly 80%. The expanded manufacturing capabilities allow for deeper localization of production and make it possible to regulate medication costs throughout the production cycle, improving the competitiveness of Russian companies.

According to Tsyb, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ministry together with FSI SID & GP and other market operators is carrying out a comprehensive review of pharmaceuticals from the list of essential drugs that are not produced in Russia to identify prospects for import replacement. “We are analyzing our national technological capabilities with a view to organize the production of these medications in Russia,” Tsyb said.
