The Ukrainian delegation opposed the appointment of Veronika Skvortsova the Minister of Healthcare of Russia to the post of the president of the Assembly during the opening of the 70th World Healthcare Assembly as the press service of the Ministry of Healthcare reports.
Ulana Suprun the acting Minister of Healthcare of Ukraine claimed that Ukraine is the sovereign state and will defend its national interests. ‘However, the Ukrainian delegation is not going to obstruct the acceptance of the 1.2 point that is the order of the day for the 70th World Healthcare Assembly but we should express our standing clearly. This Assembly became a part of the front line of the Russian hybrid warfare against Ukraine’.
Suprun reminded that ‘Russia runs unproclaimed war with Ukraine and this war led to the death of 10 thousands of people, injuring of more than 23 thousands of people and forced displacement of the millions. The Russian candidate to the post of the president of the Assembly is the last salvo of the aggression against western establishments that keep the peace more than 70 years, lengthen the lifetime and improved the quality of life all over the world‘.
‘The representative of Russia has no moral right to be the head of the World Healthcare Assembly that aims to save lives and implement the standards based on the Hippocratic oath’, Suprun claimed.
