Duda, Zelensky discuss COVID-19, Nord Stream 2

President Andrzej Duda spoke with the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, discussing, among other issues, the vaccination programme against COVID-19, energy security and sanctions on Nord Stream 2, announced the Presidential Minister Krzysztof Szczerski.

The Presidential Minister announced this Wednesday evening on Twitter, that the conversation between the two leaders was about the vaccination program against COVID-19, energy security and sanctions on Nord Stream 2. They also discussed the situation in eastern Ukraine, economic and infrastructural cooperation and their calendar of mutual visits in 2021.

Vaccinations against COVID-19 began in Ukraine on Wednesday. The day before, the first batch of the vaccine (500,000 doses), developed by the University of Oxford and AstraZeneca reached Ukraine.

The vaccination campaign in Ukraine was supposed to begin in the middle of the month. According to the plan, by the end of 2022, at least half of the population (approx.40 million people) in Ukraine is to be vaccinated.

The construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is strongly opposed by Poland, Ukraine, the Baltic States and the USA. Critics of Nord Stream 2 indicate that the project would increase Europe’s dependence on Russian gas and extend the Kremlin’s influence over European politics. On the other hand, Nord Stream 2 is supported by Germany, Austria and several other EU countries.
