It is possible to produce a Russian vaccine against coronavirus Sputnik V in Ukraine at Kharkiv company Biolik. This was stated by Viktor Medvedchuk, Chairman of the Political Council of the Opposition Platform - For Life Party, following a meeting with the developers of the Sputnik V vaccine.
He stressed that this is a very important and significant event for Ukraine. The politician reminded that Russian President Vladimir Putin, after a meeting with the chairman of the Political Council of the Opposition Platform - For Life party, Viktor Medvedchuk instructed to create a working group to find ways to supply vaccines against coronavirus to Ukraine or for the production of Sputnik V in our country.
“Today we are summing up the results, and it was decided that such an opportunity exists, there is a production capacity - the possibility of producing a vaccine in Ukraine at Biolik company in Kharkiv. Moreover, representatives of the Russian Direct Investment Fund and Gamaleya Center approved the possibility of transferring technology to Ukraine for production, as well as providing raw materials in the form of a cell line for the production of this vaccine. Therefore, now the question is: this enterprise can start the production of vaccines, at least, for export to third countries, but our main task, my main task as a representative of Ukraine, who fulfills the request of thousands of our citizens, organizations, public organizations, political forces - that such production is carried out on the territory of Ukraine in the interests of Ukrainian citizens. In order to do this, we must complete all registered with the relevant government agencies and obtain such permits. I can say one thing about how the story will develop with this issue: our political force will do everything so that the production of Sputnik V vaccine in Ukraine takes place in the interests of our citizens, in the interests of our people in Ukraine,” the politician emphasized.
