OREANDA-NEWS. The Russian vaccine against the new coronavirus is a hybrid weapon against Kiev, Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba said.

The politician noted that there is a standard way to get the drug – through the system COVAX. One can also negotiate directly with individual manufacturers or contact the authorities of states that have reserved a medicine with a large stock. “And another hybrid dimension in this story is the situation with the Russian vaccine. We understand that when we say about the Russian vaccine, it is a hybrid weapon of Russia against Ukraine,” Kuleba added.

He added that the head of the political council of the Opposition Platform, Viktor Medvedchuk, did a great job in Moscow so that Ukraine could get the Russian vaccine.
