India will soon send to Russia 100 million tablets of anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine used in the treatment COVID-19, reports RIA "news" with reference to the statement of Russia’s Ambassador to India, Nikolai Kudashev.

"Despite the fact that India itself needs it, the Indian side has gone towards the treatment of the Russian side and licensed deliveries to the Russian Federation up to 100 million tablets of hydroxychloroquine," said Kudashev.

In addition to anti-malaria, the Republic will also send to Russia a batch of paracetamol.
