The deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Ilya Kiva said that the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and his relatives could have been vaccinated with the Russian vaccine against the new coronavirus, RIA Novosti reports.
“I am more than sure that Zelenskiy and his inner circle have been vaccinated a long time ago, and to a greater extent were vaccinated with the Russian vaccine,” Kiva said.
According to the parliamentarian, the Russian vaccine against coronavirus is the most effective to date. At the same time, he did not specify which of the three drugs developed in Russia was in question.
Earlier the Kharkiv company confirmed the application for registration of “Sputnik V”. Prior to that, Deputy Minister of Health of Ukraine Viktor Lyashko said that neither the production of Sputnik V, nor vaccination with a Russian drug in the country is possible until the end of the third phase of vaccine trials.
According to the deputy of the Rada Ilya Kiva, the refusal from the Russian vaccine will allow Lyashko to “curry favor” with the United States.
