Ukraine : Clandestine falsified medicines unit shut down

A facility, operating in the town of Lubny in the Poltava region of Ukraine, was manufacturing fake medicines that were then distributed through a pharmacy chain, says a report on Petosevic.com. The operation resulted in the seizure of more than 20 fake medicines, almost 5.5kg of raw materials and other substances, as well as packaging, labels, and medical equipment. Changes to Ukraine’s criminal code increased the penalties for the production and distribution of falsified medicines, “so the persons found guilty in this case are facing a prison sentence of 8-10 years,” according to the report.
