ST. PETERSBURG, February 9 (RAPSI, Mikhail Telekhov) – Prosecutors have filed a lawsuit with the Nevsky District Court in St. Petersburg demanding to restrict access to a website selling medicine, RAPSI learnt in the St. Petersburg Prosecutor’s Office on Thursday.
Website pharm-from.ru offers such service as distance selling of medicine. The website is available for each and everyone, according to the statement.
