“In Ukraine, 43 medical workers have been killed, opposing COVID-19. Now every doctor is also on the front line, fighting for our health and our life. Ukrainian doctors are equated with the Ukrainian soldiers who protect Ukraine from harm. “And the families of the deceased doctors should receive appropriate compensation in the near future. Of course, no money will be returned to the families of their loved ones,” said the president.
In this regard, he appealed to all Ukrainians – remember that these doctors died while protecting us, and that everyone should therefore temporarily curb their cravings for sunbathing on the beach, having fun at the concert, shout in the square and dance in a nightclub. “Today, each of us can congratulate the Ukrainian doctors. And you just need a little. Don’t be indifferent. Wear masks, keep your distance. Be vigilant to be healthy. Believe it will be best gift for our doctors, “said Zelensky. .
