Helping Tskhinval with bad medicines2010-01-22 23:24
According to the results of the audits performed in the South Federal District, the drug stores in Astrakhan supplied past due medicines to South Ossetia in the context of providing humanitarian assistance. The medicines and the goods of medical purpose were supplied through the regional department of the Russian Red Cross. Will the incident be followed by audits of the drug stores in the young republic?
The Federal Service for the Supervision of Public Health and Social Development press-service (Roszdravnadzor) underlined that under the conditions of the general political tension in the region and the crisis situations that emerge quite often in the South-Ossetian republic, there have been the attempts of throwing-in the faulty and defective medicines to the hot spots in reliance on the difficulties in the drugs operational audits.
Moreover, it was stated in the course of investigation that the goods were delivered to the stock from the mobilization reserve medical centers of various constituent territories of the Russian Federation and were then also realized in Chechnya, Dagestan and North Ossetia. Ultimately, Director of national enterprise Astrakhanskie Apteki was dismissed form her post. The issue of opening a criminal case is being considered at the moment.
According to Deputy Minister of Health of South Ossetia Khsar Zasev, even if the overdue medicines were supplied to the republic, there is no direct evidence of the fact, so long as the assistance was initially sent to the stocks of North Ossetia. Nevertheless, according to the data provided by Gazeta sources in Vladikavkaz, last spring and summer the overdue "humanitarian assistance" meant for Tskhinval was carried out in trucks and thrown on the scrap-heap.
Despite this fact, information came from South Ossetia that in the course of the humanitarian operation, the Ministry of Health of the republic once had to face a situation when the shelf-life of the medicines expired while they were carried from Russia. "It was last summer; we even did not take the medicines from the stock in Vladikavkaz, - KP.ru is citing the unnamed representative office of the administration. - We have got special quality control services and we confiscate the entire batch of goods in case of a smallest doubt".
