“I am more than sure that Zelensky and his inner circle have been vaccinated a long time ago, and to a greater extent were vaccinated with the Russian vaccine,” the politician said.
Kiva called the Russian vaccine the most effective drug for coronavirus to date. The deputy also noted that the position of the Ukrainian leader on the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic “takes hundreds of lives every day,” which is why citizens “curse” the head of state.
