Medicines imported from Georgia have again been confiscated from a pharmacy in the Russian-occupied Tskhinvali region by the de-facto Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Tskhinvali region, reports RES news agency.
An investigation is underway into the 44-year-old owner of the business, a female resident of Tskhinvali who is charged with an administrative offense.
This is not the first case of pharmacies undergoing inspections and confiscations of Georgia-made products in the Russian-occupied territory.
Medicines produced in Georgia were confiscated from pharmacies in the Russian-occupied Tskhinvali region also on February 17.
The sale of Georgian-made products, including medicines, is prohibited by a resolution of the de-facto government in the Russian-occupied Tskhinvali region, which was adopted in 2006.
The resolution forbids the import and sale of meat, alcohol, non-alcoholic beverages, mineral water and other allegedly ‘low-quality’ foods from Georgia.
