President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stated that the former head of the Chief Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense Vasyl Burba offered him to obtain information on where the coronavirus began to spread, steal the vaccine formula and pass this information to Russia or China. He stated this during the press conference.
"Mr. Burba... he brought some information, that we received operational information about Covid-19, who came up with the Covid formula, that we even have a vaccine formula. He told me and named this country, this operational information, there are even papers, we can even pass them over. He offered me to pass this information over to the Russian Federation or to my Chinese colleagues," Zelensky said.
According to the head of state, it was a provocation from the fifth president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko to quarrel Ukraine with the USA.
"It was an operation called "Burba", an operation, I'm sure, from our friend [Petro Poroshenko]. Of course, Petro Oleksiyovych did all this, he wanted to break our relations with the United States. He did even more, I just don't want to get into this dirt," Zelensky added.
