    First Vice President of the Academy of Economic Sciences of Ukraine Anatoliy Peshko on Facebook called on President Volodymyr Zelensky to buy the coronavirus vaccine Sputnik V from Russia.
    “I know you, dear Volodymyr Oleksandrovych, as a responsive, kind and humane person, so I appeal to you and ask you to give appropriate instructions to the government of Ukraine for immediate resolution of the issue! It’s either about buying a ready-made vaccine or about purchasing technology for independent production from Russia,” Peshko wrote.
    According to him, the production of “Sputnik V” in Ukraine will help public health, save lives, contribute to the development of pharmacology, create jobs and increase wages.
    Peshko stressed that Ukrainians must make the right decision and buy as many doses as possible from Russia to stop the spread of coronavirus.
    In Ukraine, the coronavirus infected 561 581, recovered 254 653, died 10 002 people.
    Russia was the first country in the world to register a vaccine against COVID-19. The drug was developed by SICEM Gamaleya together with the Russian Direct Investment Fund. It was called “Sputnik V”.
