A petition has been posted on the website of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky demanding to buy the Russian Sputnik V vaccine against coronavirus. In circulation, people demand to instill it in everyone.
The petition on the site was created by a certain Nikolai Isaev. He demands “to ensure the verification, application and purchase of the required number of doses of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine.” According to the author of the appeal, this will help protect Ukrainians from coronavirus, as well as improve the socio-economic situation in the country.
Isaev believes that vaccination should be free of charge from the state budget. However, in two days the petition received only 17 votes out of the 25 thousand required for its consideration by the president.
