Russians are buying extra supplies of medications, fearing they may run out in the country as a result of Western sanctions, Reuters reported.
Pharmaceuticals research company DSM Group found that Russians bought nearly the same amount of medicines between February 28 and March 13, as they did in the entire month of January, the Russian newspaper Vedomosti, which Reuters cited, reported.
The rouble’s value plummeted, following Western sanctions and foreign firms pulling out of Russia as punishment over its invasion of Ukraine, sending prices on everyday items skyrocketing. Meanwhile, distress over the invasion and its consequences has placed many Russians on the precipice of a looming mental health crisis, the Moscow Times reported.
The medications Russians are stocking up on include antidepressants and sleeping pills, according to Reuters.
