OREANDA-NEWS. The Ministry of Internal Affairs suggested including some anabolics in the list of potent drugs.  The initiative also applies to those listed on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Forbidden List.

 As noted in the explanatory note to the project, during the monitoring on the Internet there were many sites selling anabolic steroids - modified versions included in the list of potent substances falling under the articles of the Criminal Code.

 Several anabolic steroids are listed as potent substances.  This is stated in the resolution, signed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.  The list includes such anabolics as mebolazin, propetandrol, roxybolone, enestebol and epitiostanol.  All of them are modifications of drugs that were previously included in the list.  These steroids are withdrawn from free circulation, but not prohibited.
