"I know that the construction started much later than planned due to the epidemic, and the second half of the departments have already completed the project documentation. Nevertheless, I think we need to accelerate the pace as much as possible. These departments are not just construction projects. This is the life and health of our people," Zelensky noted.

As we reported earlier, according to Deputy Head of the Ukrainian Parliament Olena Kondratyuk, Ukraine has a chance to obtain enough vaccine to get only four million people inoculated in the near future.
