The head of the Ministry of Health of Slovakia, Marek Krajci, was fired for deciding to purchase the Russian Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine in secret from the ruling coalition. According to the Prime Minister of the country, Igor Matovich, Kraichi was simply sacrificed as a “ritual sacrifice.”

Matovic stood up for the dismissed official, noting that during the epidemic he did more to save people than anyone else. However, enraged officials from the ruling opposition pushed Krajci to resign.

A man stands next to me who, of all the ministers, “plowed” the pandemic more than anyone else in 12 months, the Prime Minister emphasized, speaking at a press conference.

He called the dismissal of the head of Mizdrav an inhuman and immoral act.

Let us remind you that earlier a group of officials from the ruling coalition expressed indignation at the decision of Matovic and Krajci to purchase a batch of Sputnik V vaccine from Russia. They drew attention to the fact that the Russian drug has not yet received approval from the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and therefore cannot be purchased in the European Union. They even demanded that the President of Slovakia Zuzana Caputova dismiss the Prime Minister, but she refused.

Note that the lack of approval from the EMA did not stop Hungary and Serbia, which bought the Russian vaccine, despite the European rules. At the same time, Norway, Denmark, and Italy temporarily refused to use the EMA-approved vaccine from AstraZeneca because it caused blood clots in patients.
