MOSCOW, 8 March – RIA Novosti. Senator Alexei Pushkov commented on the statement by the head of the Foreign Ministry of Slovakia, Ivan Korczok, about the Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine.
Earlier, the head of the Slovak Foreign Ministry called the Russian vaccine “an instrument of hybrid war.”
The senator expressed the opinion that in this way the diplomat tried to parody Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.
“The head of the Slovak Foreign Ministry decided to imitate Kuleba from the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, repeating his stupidity about the Russian vaccine as” an instrument of hybrid warfare. He does not think about how a vaccine can be a tool of war, “Pushkov wrote in Telegram.
He also admitted that he considers the model of behavior of some Eastern European politicians to be “amazing”. “An amazing generation of politicians has grown up in Eastern Europe without their own thoughts, repeating meaningless platitudes and reproducing empty cliches and building their careers on this. It is a deplorable sight,” the senator explained.
The first batch of Sputnik V was delivered to Slovakia on March 1. Prime Minister Igor Matovic said that they decided to buy the Russian drug without waiting for its registration in the European Union, since there are not enough vaccines, and dozens of people die from COVID-19 in Slovakia every day. This decision caused serious political divisions in the country.
