In parliament, as well as throughout the country – not without anti-vaccination workers.

The Verkhovna Rada is closed for quarantine: entrance only for vaccinated or regular COVID-19 tests. One of the reasons is the growing indignation of Ukrainians, who were significantly limited due to the pandemic.
The situation in Ukraine is indeed close to catastrophic. We have the second highest number of COVID-19 deaths in Europe. The country has passed the mark of 500 deaths per day this month.
At the same time, the rate of vaccination is the lowest in the whole of Europe. In Ukraine, only about 18% of vaccinated citizens.
The world media are literally amazed at the situation in the country. In October, The New York Times comes out with an article on skyrocketing death statistics in Ukraine. The authors write that a country that has been fighting corruption for many years risks undermining the fight against COVID-19 due to massive fake vaccination certificates.
And after three lockdowns, the MPs nevertheless decided to show the Ukrainians by personal example how to comply with the restrictions. For this it was necessary to register a separate decree No. 6154. The document provides for a special admission to the buildings of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
In Ukraine, only 1/5 of the vaccinated citizens. And what is the situation with the deputies: how many of them are against vaccination?
– How can one study sociology among deputies today, when today at least three planes per day die in the country. What are we talking about now? I don’t even want to think about this question. It’s just not interesting. I believe that the people’s deputies, seeing that the country buries as much a day as we bury when several Boeing are killed … Do you remember how we condoled when we wrote about UIA?
A Ukrainian International Airlines (UIA) passenger liner carrying 176 people, including 11 Ukrainian citizens, was shot down during its flight from Tehran to Kiev on January 8, 2020.
How can one study sociology among deputies today, when today at least three planes per day die in the country. What are we talking about now? I don’t even want to think about this question.
When laws are passed that require people to do something, they have no right not to do the same thing that is required of people.
Therefore, the people’s deputy is delegated by people, who by their example should show what and how should happen. And the price of all these quirks about 5G and everything else is three Boeings a day. We lost an entire city during the epidemic.
In Ukraine, for the entire time of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are more than 68 thousand deaths. Indeed, this number can be compared with the population of the satellite cities of Kiev – Brispol or Irpin. And if we compare with smaller cities, then these are two Buchi or two Boyarka. Yes, even two beloved “Servant of the people” Truskavets, where about 30 thousand people live.
Does the Rada have a majority on vaccination decisions?
– In the “Servant of the People” there are also deputies who are ready to speculate about 5G. The country recognizes its “heroes”. They say nonsense, and this is their right and their worldview. Today, the country has a dire problem related to COVID-19. The most important thing for me is to save every life of a citizen of Ukraine. But definitely not to be interested in where the MP got the opinion that vaccination is the implantation of a transmitter chip in order to use 5G.
WHAT IS THIS THEORY
An anti-scientific theory about the alleged harm of 5G (the fifth generation of mobile networks) to the human body. Since the beginning of the pandemic, opponents of 5G have claimed that instead of COVID-19, people are actually supposedly “suffering from frequencies that block the connection with hemoglobin in human blood”, which is by definition a pseudoscientific “fact.”
Fortunately, among all factions, the vast majority of people understand this threat and what it means to save the country. I am very happy with this actually. I am sure that the majority in the Rada have sane views. So far, I have no doubts that there are 226. Thank you to the President for bringing the issue of these restrictions to the order of this extraordinary session.
Certainly some deputies will talk about violation of rights. Do you have anything to say to them?
– For this I have a lot of documents.
The decision of the European Court of Human Rights, which clearly states that vaccination is not a violation of human rights.
There is a third article of the Constitution of Ukraine, where, among other things, the phrase is written that the main social task is the health and safety of citizens.
The fact is that the articles of the Constitution are slightly higher than the law. And article 33 says that no one has the right to restrict freedom of movement and so on, unless otherwise specified by law.
And now we read other laws. There are two of them. The first law of 2000 on the infectious safety of citizens of Ukraine, which clearly states that there may be restrictions on the non-proliferation of the epidemic. And the second law of 1992 on the protection of the health of citizens of Ukraine.
You can argue here. But I think you can argue when all is well. And when we lose three Boeings a day, I think that this dispute is about nothing.
What will happen to the Verkhovna Rada now?
– There is no compulsory vaccination. The deputy has a choice:
- He is vaccinated.
- He was ill and has a certificate for three months after the illness.
- He takes a PCR test or an antigen test every three days.
The apparatus of the Verkhovna Rada will do everything that is necessary for this. On the sidelines and around the Verkhovna Rada there will be laboratories where testing can be carried out without hindrance. More than five vaccination points have been opened, two of which are open to all citizens of Ukraine.
The first one is at the Kiev hotel. The second one is at the National Hotel. This is not counting the premises of the Verkhovna Rada.
Everything has been done in order not to hinder the deputy from fulfilling his constitutional duties.
When there is a red zone in the city, and the Verkhovna Rada is in Kiev, the restrictions cannot apply to ordinary people and do not apply to deputies.
