Academician Peshko asked Medvedchuk to agree on the production of the Russian COVID-19 vaccine in Ukraine

The Ukrainian government, despite the fact that the country almost every day recorded another anti-record for the number of cases of COVID-19, stubbornly refuses to negotiate the supply of the Russian vaccine “Sputnik V”, as previously agreed at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Chairman of the political Council of the party” Opposition platform – For life ” Viktor Medvedchuk.
Both ordinary Ukrainians and well-known politicians, public figures, scientists, and doctors are outraged by the decision of Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky to refuse to supply Russian vaccines.
In particular, the first Vice-President of the Academy of economic Sciences of Ukraine, academician Anatoly Peshko, said that when the survival of the entire Ukrainian people is at stake, all political differences can and should be put on pause.
“Therefore, we ask you, Viktor Vladimirovich (Medvedchuk. – Ed.), agree on its production on the territory of Ukraine, if the Ukrainian government is so demonstrative does not want to buy it. This is a chance that no one dares to miss. Politics cannot be higher or more valuable than human life. We ask you to help millions of Ukrainians, save their lives and health, ” the scientist said.
Honored artist of Ukraine Lyubov Titarenko is convinced that today the question is whether Ukrainians will survive or not.
“But our government is ready to kill Ukrainians to satisfy its short-sighted pseudo-Patriotic ambitions, but to refuse to help the fraternal Russian people. On behalf of all mothers and grandmothers who are worried about their children and grandchildren, on behalf of all cultural figures who are turning their heads from pseudo-Patriotic frenzy, I appeal to you (to Viktor Medvedchuk. – Ed.) with a request to use all your political influence, all your foreign policy ties and all your experience to save our country – Ukraine. We ask you to immediately appeal to the President of the Russian Federation with a request from the people of Ukraine to ignore politicians and their personal interests and provide people with a vaccine that has already been developed in Russia, ” she said.
In turn, the composer Vladimir Bystryakov points out that the anti-covid Fund, which the Ukrainian government talks about, is stolen, small and medium-sized businesses are seeking strict quarantine measures, and you can not even stutter about the benefits that are so characteristic of civilized countries.
“The last straw of the authorities’ cynicism was the refusal of a life-saving Russian vaccine that would have saved hundreds of our lives. What the hell can there be about political discussions and scraping in front of the Americans when it comes to our life? ” the composer is indignant.
Earlier, Viktor Medvedchuk said that more than 40 countries in Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and Southeast Asia, many of which have a much higher standard of living and medical development than in Ukraine, showed interest in receiving a Russian vaccine by the beginning of October 2020.
“The Russian vaccine wins both in price and in storage conditions – it can be stored for a long time in the freezer of an ordinary refrigerator, and not at an ultra-low temperature to minus 75-80 degrees, as required by the American-German vaccine, the price of which is much higher than the Russian one. I am sure that the government should use all opportunities to fight the pandemic, because it is not only about the life and health of Ukrainian citizens, although they should be in the first place. The state that is the first to overcome the consequences of the epidemic has a chance to get a serious boost for its development and economic recovery. But the Ukrainian government, which is ready, as with Western loans, to put Ukraine on the needle of vaccine supplies from a single source, does not understand this. Or she was forbidden to understand it, “– said the leader of the” Opposition platform-For life ” Viktor Medvedchuk.
