DISINFO: Refusal to buy Sputnik V leads to the genocide of Ukrainians


Ukraine’s refusal to buy the Russian Sputnik V vaccine against COVID-19 is a genocide of the Ukrainian population. The genocide by the puppet government controlled by the US State Department shows that the State Department is launching a genocide program on the territory of the colony.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on coronavirus, aiming to promote the Sputnik V vaccine mixed with the narrative that Ukraine is under external control.

Sputnik V vaccine has been met with international skepticism, and even the World Health Organisation expressed some reservations, especially as it hasn’t completed large trials to test the vaccine’s safety and efficacy. Rolling out an inadequately vetted vaccine could endanger the people who receive it.

The Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy was clear when he said,

“If someone has a vaccine for COVID-19, Ukraine will buy it."

He pointed out the same argument regarding any vaccine from the EU by stating,

"The EU has confirmed that it will help Ukraine get a real vaccine when it appears and when it does not cast doubts from the scientists."

According to Ukrainian Healthcare Minister Maksym Stepanov, the Ukrainian government is not planning to acquire the Russian vaccine,

"given that the latter has not yet gone through the third stage of clinical trials."

On the same note, the Ukrainian Health Ministry stated that the country is already set to receive a COVID-19 vaccine via the COVAX mechanism, an international initiative launched by the World Health Organisation, the European Commission, and the government of France, to ensure efficient access to COVID-19 vaccines once they are ready.
