Press releases regarding medicines for mainstream media can be treated as advertising and thus need to strictly comply with restrictions provided for the medicines advertising; in particular, adhering to general principles of advertising and special restrictions and requirements in terms of medicines advertising.

In cases when information contained in press releases is intended for placement in specialised industry publications dedicated to medical issues, fewer restrictions will be applied, that is, it is allowed to provide information about medicines in compliance with the requirements thereto set forth in the Law on Medicines.
