The government of Austria will pass 500,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine to Ukraine at no cost as Nachrichten reported citing Foreign Minister Alexander Schallenberg.

“Austria cannot put a full stop in the fight against the pandemic if people who live in close vicinity to us in Europe are not vaccinated,” Schallenberg said.
