Anatoliy Peshko, the First Vice-President of the Academy of Economic Sciences of Ukraine, urged the President of the country Volodymyr Zelensky to purchase the 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 the appropriate orders to the government of Ukraine to immediately resolve the issue! Either to purchase a ready-made vaccine or to purchase technology from Russia for independent production. Start of immediate production of this vaccine at domestic pharmaceutical enterprises will not only help health care in Ukraine, but also the development of the pharmacological industry, and thus the emergence of new jobs, increasing wages, at least to employees of the pharmaceutical industry,” – said in his address.
Peshko stressed that Ukrainians must make the only right decision and buy the maximum number of doses for vaccination of Ukrainian citizens from Russia in order to stop the spread of viral infection.
“And save the lives of the most vulnerable categories of citizens of our country – people with heart disease, diabetes, oncology, etc. After all, these are someone’s grandparents, fathers and mothers, they are members of one big family – Ukraine.
I urge you, Volodymyr, to put aside all political disagreements and think about saving the lives of thousands of Ukrainians! After all, they may die of a deadly virus in the coming months. The European Union, despite the sanctions regime against Russia, can afford to allow the use of Russian vaccine on its territory. This vaccine is purchased by such countries as Israel, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Hungary, Brazil, China, South Korea, Turkey, India. So why is Ukraine not ready to put human life above politics?
Dear Vladimir Alexandrovich, I ask you to agree with Vladimir Putin, so the most important issue for our country. Or address to Viktor Medvedchuk, who has already held talks with the Russian leadership regarding the purchase of the vaccine.
All of us must first of all think about the Ukrainian people. Politics will wait. People want to live. Please, buy a vaccine, give the Ukrainians a chance to survive! – said in the address.
