All unvaccinated from coronavirus will be banned from entering the parliament building
Soon even BP will be vaccinated against coronavirus / Collage “Today”
Next week, a vaccination center will operate in the premises of the Ukrainian parliament, where both deputies and journalists can be vaccinated against coronavirus.
This was stated by the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Health Committee Mikhail Radutsky on the air of the “Right to Power” program.
“From the next plenary week in the Verkhovna Rada there will be a permanent vaccination point for deputies, for employees of the Verkhovna Rada, for security guards and even for journalists – everyone who has the right to enter the Verkhovna Rada will be able to be vaccinated directly in the Verkhovna Rada“, – said Redutsky.
At the same time, restrictions are imposed on visiting the parliament building. For everyone, including the chairman of the Verkhovna Rada, if he is not vaccinated. It will be possible to pass only with a vaccination certificate, negative test or a certificate of recovery.
True, all this will work in the event of a positive vote for the decree on strengthening measures to combat COVID-19.
“Today we did not have time to vote on the resolution that was on the agenda. Hopefully tomorrow (October 22 – Auth.) Will vote. Firstly, it will be impossible to enter the Verkhovna Rada – no matter if it is a deputy or an assistant, or it is the head of the Verkhovna Rada – if he does not have a vaccination certificate, he cannot be admitted to the hall of the Verkhovna Rada. Because it is impossible to demand from people if you allow yourself something else“, – remarked Redutsky.
MPs hide their vaccinations
At the same time, Radutsky could not say how many people’s deputies were vaccinated today.
“Unfortunately, we were unable to calculate the exact number. Someone refers to medical confidentiality. The apparatus of the Verkhovna Rada under the former leadership did not provide such information at all. As of today, according to our rough estimates, this is somewhere around 60-65%“, – said the chairman of the parliamentary committee on health issues.
