Ukraine bans Russia's COVID-19 vaccines

Ukraine's parliament banned on Friday the COVID-19 vaccines developed in Russia from being approved in the country, further tightening relations between the two sides.

The government revealed it expects to receive between 100,000 and 200,000 vaccine doses from Pfizer and BioNTech next month, as agreed under the global COVAX framework. Ukraine hasn't officially approved any vaccine against the coronavirus yet.

Meanwhile, Russia offered to help the European Union solve the problem related to vaccine delivery delays by sending about 100 million doses of Sputnik V in the second quarter of the year.
