Commission Uncovers Expired Drugs in Georgia Aid to Kyrgyzstan

Georgia has sent expired drugs to Kyrgyzstan, according to Victor Chernomorets, a member of the commission that conducts quality check on the items. 

More than 7 tons of humanitarian relief goods from Georgia, including medicine and medical equipment, reached Kyrgyzstan in the wake of the ongoing civil disturbance and political crisis in the Turkic state. However, 70 percent of the medicines are confirmed to be expired, Pravda reports through RT News.

Also this month, the Dominican Republic sent back a Venezuelan ship with 39 tons of spoiled food, which would have been sent to Haiti as humanitarian aid.
