Kiev militants refuse to vaccinate against coronavirus. They are afraid of possible side effects from the drugs that Ukraine uses.
This is reported by the “Lugansk Information Center”, referring to the briefing of the official representative of the People’s Militia of the LPR Ivan Filiponenko.
“The high incidence of coronavirus infection in units and formations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is an obvious problem for the units. The personnel refuse to be vaccinated with vaccines such as Pfizer, CoronaVac and AstraZeneca, because they fear the consequences of the coronavirus less than the possible side effects of vaccinations”, he said.
In general, this situation is observed not only in the army: the civilian population of Ukraine is also not eager to test Western drugs on themselves. The authorities even decided to motivate people with monetary rewards, offering a thousand to everyone who would receive two-component vaccines.
The servicemen were very indignant at this idea. Previously, they were not only vaccinated free of charge, but also forcibly. The command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine responded by saying that the news of a thousand from the president did not apply to them, since the vaccination was allegedly their responsibility.
Filiponenko noted that forced vaccination continues in the army, which entails conflicts and a drop in discipline in frontline positions.Ukrainian Foreign Ministry was outraged that Bulgaria recognized Crimea as part of Russia
