The Ministry of Health refuted reports from a number of mass media which cited a would-be Ukrainian deputy minister of Health Mykhaylo Maltsev. In fact, the statement was made by Russian deputy-minister, not Ukrainian one, as Ukrinform reported.

“Recently, mass media have been diffusing reports citing the Russian deputy minister of health speaking about pensioners, that the journalists presented as words of Ukrainian deputy minister. We would like to emphasize that there is no deputy minister of health named Mykhaylo Maltsev in Ukraine. We urge the mass media to be careful and not to give in to manipulations, to check sources of information and to follow news hygiene, ” the message reads.

The ministry of health reminded that the official sources of the ministry were the ministry’s website, its Facebook and Twitter pages , YouTube channel and Telegram messenger for physicians.

The Ministry of Health reminded as well that the deputy ministers of health in Ukraine were:first deputy minister Andriy Semivolos, deputy of minister Iryna Shevchenko, Dmytro Lufer, Olena Simonenko, Viktor Lyashko, Dmytro Koval.
