Zelensky urged to send Medvedchuk to Russia to purchase vaccine against coronavirus

This initiative was taken by the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Renat Kuzmin.

 Volodymyr Zelensky should immediately send the head of the political council of the Opposition Platform – For Life (Opposition Platform – For Life) party, deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Viktor Medvedchuk to Russia for negotiations with the aim of producing a vaccine against COVID-19 in Ukraine, said Renat Kuzmin, a deputy from Oppositional Platform for Life.

The politician motivated his initiative with the recent success of Medvedchuk in negotiations on the supply of vaccines from the Russian Federation. According to Kuzmin, such a step is necessary “to save the Ukrainians.”

The First Vice-President of the Academy of Economic Sciences of Ukraine Anatoliy Peshko is also requesting that Viktor Medvedchuk be involved in negotiations with the Russian Federation to conclude a deal to purchase the Sputnik-V vaccine. Peshko believes that Ukraine should make “the only right decision and buy from Russia the maximum number of doses for vaccination of Ukrainian citizens in order to stop the spread of viral infection.”

According to Ukrainian scientists, by the end of the month, about 200,000 new cases of COVID-19 infection will be detected in the country. Thus, experts from the Institute of Market Problems and Economic and Environmental Research of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine say that by the end of November the total number of episodes of infection in the country will reach 738 thousand people, which is almost 200 thousand more than the official forecast. Scientists also believe that during this period the virus will kill another 3,100 Ukrainians, and their total number will be about 12,800 people.
