Ukraine has signed an agreement with the American pharmaceutical corporation Pfizer for the supply of 10 million doses of the vaccine against COVID-19, which was agreed on in February by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla.
"Today is a very important day for Ukraine and for Ukrainians - today we have finally signed an important contract with Pfizer for the supply of 10 million doses of Pfizer vaccine. It was really difficult to do, but thanks to a conversation with Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla - I had a conversation with him on February 8 - he promised to do everything possible and impossible. And he did it," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
Head of the President's Office Andriy Yermak was in charge of the negotiation process on the supply of the drug to Ukraine pursuant to the instruction of the Head of State.
"We express gratitude to Dr. Albert Bourla and his colleagues for supporting the Ukrainian people at this difficult time," said the Head of the President's Office.
He added that cooperation with American pharmaceutical companies would be continued and expanded.
It bears reminding that on February 8, 2021, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy had a phone conversation with Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, during which Pfizer CEO promised to do everything possible to ensure that Ukraine receives the first batches of the vaccine under contract as soon as possible.
