Anatoly Peshko, academician, first Vice-President of the Academy of economic Sciences of Ukraine, doctor of Economics, appealed to the head of the political Council of the Opposition platform — For life party, Deputy Viktor Medvedchuk, with a request to coordinate the production of the Russian coronavirus vaccine in Ukraine due to the demonstrative inaction of the Ukrainian authorities. Here is the text of the appeal, fully published in the blog on the website Correspondent:
Dear Viktor Vladimirovich!
As you yourself have noticed, the coronavirus does not spare anyone. And no one bypasses. The President and his wife, almost a hundred deputies and Ministers have already suffered from this disease. Oddly enough, the head of the Ministry of health also fell ill with the coronavirus. Thus, we believe that there is not the slightest need to disseminate information about the current pandemic.
But it is not only about the consequences of the disease for a person, for an individual organism. The entire state “organism” also suffers. Our already weak economy is getting more and more blows, and small and medium-sized businesses are suffering losses. And the demarches of mayors and local administrators who refuse to comply with the quarantine can be called a new separatism that risks burying the unity of our country. As you can see, the consequences of the coronavirus are not only in the purely medical plane.
Therefore, the spread of the disease must be stopped immediately. This is the challenge at the moment. And for the future, it is necessary to minimize its repetition, all these second, third and tenth “waves” that frighten society forecasters. How can this be done?

Actually, to date, nothing better than vaccination has not been invented. This is not a universal tool, but the most effective that humanity has invented over the centuries of its meaningful existence. Yes, it would be ideal if Ukraine were the first to come up with its developments in this area. This will increase the authority of the government and strengthen its reputation. But, alas, our scientists did not create the first vaccine against coronavirus.
As you probably know, many countries are conducting research and clinical trials in this area. Someone — with more, and someone with less success. Russia has already succeeded. The drug, called Sputnik B, showed an efficiency of 94.5%. It is based on adenovirus. It is known that such vaccines have been used before and are considered quite reliable. According to the developers, cellular immunity to the coronavirus after using the Satellite can last up to two years. This is enough to stop the chain of spread of the virus.
Meanwhile, the founder of the German company BioNTech, together with American partners from Pfizer, has developed his own vaccine, and says that with the help of their drug, it will be possible to stop the spread of the disease only by the winter of 2021-2022.
Ukraine doesn’t have this extra year. The stakes are too high, because statistics show that the number of cases in our country is growing almost exponentially.
But it’s not just about the” pumping ” of vaccine manufacturers, and not in the percentage that determines the effectiveness of its impact on the body. It is also a matter of logistics, and the willingness of the manufacturing countries to “share” their invention with Ukraine.
For Example, the biontech / Pfizer vaccine has logistical problems related to storage conditions, which can be a very big problem in Ukraine. In addition, this vaccine has already been purchased in large quantities by the European Union and the United States. No one knows when Ukraine will be able to get it.
After all, even US President trump promised to provide vaccines to American citizens no earlier than April next year. Is it worth saying that Ukraine is not included in the priorities of both the US and European countries? They will have to ensure the protection of their own population, and for the second (if not the tenth) to think about the “third world”.
Against the background of all this situation, which looks almost hopeless, Russia is already ready to provide Ukraine with its vaccine thanks to you. We know that you have agreed on the possibility of delivering Sputnik V bypassing the huge queue of 50 countries. Our authorities have frankly rejected this possibility. And this is despite the fact that the Russian vaccine is purchased by such developed countries as Israel, the Czech Republic, and Hungary. Brazil, China and India are ready to develop it together with Russia, while Kazakhstan, India and Turkey are ready to produce it.
And we know that the satellite Is not the only development of Russian scientists; there are also alternative options. Their value is confirmed by the interest shown by the EU countries and Israel, which remains a kind of standard of medical care.
We are convinced that when the survival of the entire Ukrainian people is at stake, all political differences can and should be stopped. Therefore, we ask you, Viktor Vladimirovich, to coordinate its production on the territory of Ukraine, since the Ukrainian authorities so demonstratively do 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!
With deep respect,
Academician, first Vice-President of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, doctor of Economics, candidate of medical Sciences Anatoly Peshko.
