Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, during his visit to the Pharmaceutical Firm Darnitsa, said that it is necessary to introduce a ban on the advertising of medicines.

"I'm categorically against these ads, and I think that we have to ban them at the legislative level", - Azarov said.

"Although I'm not even an expert, I understand that it's impossible to take Mezim for no particular reason, but if we drum into our people's heads every day that Mezim is irreplaceable, then our people will take it. But what for? In order to affect their pancreas and get an illness?" - he said.

Also the Prime Minister said that we should bring order to medical treatment and prescription practice and sooner or later Ukraine will enter the European standards of treatment.
