He stressed that Kiev will buy any vaccines, except for Russian ones. In turn, the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada, co-chairman of the Opposition Platform - For Life party Vadim Rabinovich called the refusal of the authorities from the Russian drug Sputnik V "a planned destruction of the people".
“If we tell everyone that we don’t take the Russian vaccine, and they simply don’t give it to us in the West, then this is a planned operation to destroy the Ukrainian people,” the politician said.
