The Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko was vaccinated against the coronavirus with the drug developed by Russia, as the spokeswoman for the Belarusian Prime Minister Alexandra Isaeva announced.
“The Prime Minister of the Republic of Belarus injected himself with the vaccine after negotiations with his Russian counterpart (Mikhail Mishustin), which took place in Minsk on September 3rd. He is feeling perfectly well. He went to work on Friday and Saturday.” Isaeva told the Russian news agency Sputnik in statements.
Last Thursday, at the end of the consultations between Golovchenko and Mishustin, the Russian Prime Minister announced that his Belarusian counterpart had decided to get vaccinated. Mishustin then confirmed that Belarus will be among the first countries to receive the Russian coronavirus vaccine.
Last Saturday, the Belarusian Ministry of Health reported that Moscow and Minsk had agreed to organize clinical trials with the Russian vaccine in Belarus.
