Ukraine’s ambassador to Turkey, Andrii Sybiha, and his wife received their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine as part of Ankara’s vaccination program on March 15.
Sybiha shared a picture of himself and his wife receiving the vaccine at Ankara City Hospital on Twitter.
“Our health is great; we are acting in line with the doctors’ advice,” Sybiha said.
“We did not hesitate to make this decision because Turkey ranks sixth in vaccination speed, with respect to its population, among countries worldwide,” he added.

Kwaasteniet also shared a picture of herself receiving the vaccine on her Twitter account.
