Russians overpay for drugs because of cartel conspiracies?


According to the head of the FAS Igor Artemyev, the share of cartels in the construction and pharmaceutical markets reaches 90% of the Photo: Kirill Kukhmar / TASS Damage from cartels makes about 2% of GDP, the head of Federal Antimonopoly Service of the Russian Federation Igor Artemyev said. According to him, the share of cartels in the construction and pharmaceutical markets reaches 90%. "We buy drugs at the raised prices today" — the head of the FAS noted. Whether really Russians overpay for drugs? Asked such question Business FM to the executive director of Association of pharmaceutical institutions of Soyuzfarm Dmitry Tselousov. Dmitry Tselousov the executive director of Association of pharmaceutical institutions of Soyuzfarm "Federal Antimonopoly Service constantly conducts work with producers. Today reduced the price for rather large amount of medicines. Of course, it concerns vital, major medicines. It is necessary to consider if the price falls for vital medicines, then in principle it can increase on medicines which are not included in the ZhNLP list. Therefore we see reduction of the price on some positions and increase in the price on other positions. On the one hand, maybe, the buyer on some medicines already noticed it and paid attention that medicines became slightly more available. At the same time other medicines became more expensive because producers cannot reduce indefinitely the prices, work to themselves at a loss. Here it is difficult to agree that the price is much more overstated". At the same time the experts interviewed by Business FM are sure that in state procurements of drugs cartel conspiracies precisely are. Sergey Shulyak the CEO of the analytical agency DSM Group "For example, to agree on entry into the market of some region upon some expensive medicines, of course, very big temptation. As it occurs: several companies suppliers agree and distribute among themselves lots of various medicines, agree that they will not compete and reduce the price when tendering. Then the maximum price of lot turns out. Respectively, someone gets profit at sale of some medicines, someone — at sale of other medicines". By estimates of the head of the FAS, digitalization of economy also led to emergence of new forms of monopolization of the market by means of robots and to the subsequent increase in prices in the market.
