The European Union is concerned about the impact of Russian disinformation about the vaccination process in Ukraine.

Valdis Dombrovskis, Executive Vice-President of the European Commission in charge of an economy that works for people, and Commissioner for Trade said this addressing a plenary session in the European Parliament on the Ukraine-EU Association Agreement on Tuesday, February 9.

"The Bloc is ready to assist in the fight against this disinformation and vaccine scepticism," Dombrovskis said.

He added that the EU is exploring options to help Ukraine to receive early access to vaccines.

The EC vice-president noted that Ukraine would receive 170,000 doses of Pfizer vaccine as early as February, and 2.2. to 3.7 million doses of Astra Zeneca vaccine during the first half of the year.

The EU is looking forward for vaccination to start in Ukraine this month, the official concluded.
