Ukraine's Minister of Healthcare Maksym Stepanov commented on the information about the estimated time of arrival of vaccines in this country; earlier, The Economist assumed that it would not happen until 2023. The Ukrainian official claimed tha the vaccination in Ukraine would still begin this February, with no changes in the schedule. Stepanov said so in an interview with Ukraine 24 TV channel. 

"Unlike many analysts, we at the Ministry live up to all commitments that we undertook. If we said that we'd start the massive vaccination in February, then we start in February. I'm not going to comment on the assumptions of analysts. I have no idea where this 2023 or 2025 come from", the minister said.

Stepanov also reported that 30 million Ukrainians will be able to get inoculated for free.
