"I think that once we start some serious action, and it started immediately, to save our medicine, including how it was done before and what the consequences have led to immediate activation of people who had a direct relationship to the collapse of this medicine... I can't call it flawless (his work – editor), but I think quite a lot done over this period and we have plans that we are going to do next," Stepanov said the TV channel "1 1" Wednesday morning.
