Russian Senator Aleksey Pushkov commented on the imposition of sanctions by the Ukrainian authorities against the former President of Yemen, who died in 2017. He admitted that he was amazed by the actions of Kiev.
Last week, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy signed a decree imposing restrictions against ex-Yemeni leader Ali Abdullah Saleh. The deceased was banned from entering Ukraine and transit through its territory. Also, his assets were blocked.
Zelensky’s decision was ridiculed by Pushkov. In his telegram channel, the senator called Ukraine “a country of great absurdity”: either Kiev is trying to ban the books of Mikhail Bulgakov, then it calls academician Sergei Korolyov “a great Ukrainian scientist”, then it imposes sanctions on the politician who died in 2017.
“What they have in their head, only God knows. And that is unlikely – there is such a compote”, – concluded the senator.
Earlier, Pushkov reacted to Kiev’s refusal from the Russian vaccine. According to him, Zelensky’s words about the ineffectiveness of Sputnik V sound unconvincing. The president understands only humor, while in politics he is “short-sighted”. The senator asked how the head of the country will act when the European Union recognizes the vaccine.
We will remind, the Russian “Sputnik V” became the first officially registered vaccine in the world. Its effectiveness against coronavirus infection has been confirmed by experts from around the world. Today the drug is used in more than 25 countries of the world, among them – Belarus, Serbia, Hungary.
