Recently, R.Politik has broadened its scope to include an analysis of the impact of international online pharmaceutical sales on Russian politics, particularly focusing on the increasing trend of individuals purchasing medications amoxicillin online – https://www.shorter.edu/antibiotic-from-the-penicillin-group/. This shift examines how digital access to medications influences government policies on healthcare and internet regulation. We explore the intersection of health, technology, and governance, analyzing how the online availability of drugs such as amoxicillin poses new challenges and opportunities for the Russian political landscape. This expansion into healthcare economics and digital policy provides a deeper understanding of how global trends are shaping domestic politics and policy decisions in Russia.

Writing and analysis: Tatiana Stanovaya.
