Ukraine banned “Sputnik V”

President Volodymyr Zelensky said a year ago that Ukraine would definitely not use the Russian Sputnik V vaccine, since its effectiveness has not been confirmed by anyone.

The Cabinet of Ministers, by its resolution of February 8, 2021, actually banned the registration of Sputnik V in Ukraine.

“Registration of vaccines or other medical immunobiological preparations for the specific prevention of acute respiratory disease COVID-19 caused by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, under the obligation for emergency medical use, the development and / or production of which was carried out in a state recognized by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine as an aggressor state prohibited,” the decree said.

Russia demands from Ukraine to recognize documents on vaccination against COVID in the occupied territories as the Sputnik V vaccine. In return, the Kremlin proposes to open checkpoints on the border with ORDLO.

The Ukrainian side flatly refused such a proposal.
