After rejecting Russia’s coronavirus vaccine, Russian media: Ukraine has no vaccine

by YCPress

“After rejecting Russia’s ‘Sputnik V’ vaccine, Ukraine did not have a coronavirus vaccine, and Crimea and Donbas began to provide vaccines.” Russia Today (RT) reported on this topic on the 27th local time.

The report also said that Russia launched a coronavirus vaccine last August, leading neighboring countries, including Ukraine, which Western media have noticed.

The article said that the vaccine is “now a weapon in the conflict between Ukraine and Russia”.

The article also said that the troubled Eastern European country is one of the few countries on the continent that have not yet started vaccination, because the vaccine it can provide is “either not approved for use or has not arrived”.

The article also said that Russian President Putin achieved a “publica propaganda victory” by providing a “Sputnik V” vaccine in Crimea.

RT went on to mention that Ukraine has not yet developed its own vaccine and has been difficult to obtain any dose of vaccine from overseas.

The report also said that in January this year, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmitro Kuleba insisted that Ukraine would not accept Moscow’s assistance plan even if international regulators confirmed the effectiveness of the “Sputnik V” vaccine.

In an interview, Kuleba mentioned that “the propaganda of ‘Sputnik V’ far exceeds its actual ability and effect” and that it can only be used to gain political bonuses.

RT also said that Ukrainian President Zelensky revealed in December last year that he was disappointed with the U.S. coronavirus vaccine export ban, and said that if the West stood idly by, the Ukrainian government would no longer defend the claim of “refusing Moscow’s help”.

Ukraine has been trying to curb the large number of coronavirus cases (breaks).

The report also said that in December last year, Ukraine received a loan of $300 million from the World Bank to support Ukraine’s access to vaccine orders from (some) enterprises.

However, because global demand far exceeds supply, there is no guarantee that any (Ukraine) will receive any (enterprise) vaccine soon.
