A pilot plant at the Kharkiv State Scientific Center of Medicines has halted supplies of the drug mesatonum, which is widely used in intensive care units and maternity homes, to the Russian Federation, according to Russia’s Kommersant.

“We can’t re-register the price of this drug. At the moment, we simply can no longer supply it at the same price, this would mean that we are working at a loss,” Natalia Vorona, a representative of the plant said.

The company also stressed that this is in no way connected with politics.

"Our refusal to supply mesatonum to Russia is not a political stance. We want to work with Russia, as any commercial enterprise we want to make profit. And it no longer possible under the previous conditions,” she emphasized.
