The parliamentarian suggested that ”a domestic political factor played its role, and acting this way the President of the United States avoids problems, transferring responsibility to external players for gaps in the US healthcare system.“

“It is another example of selfishness and politicization of COVID-19. Just when we need solidarity and coordinated efforts of all states. This is not the time to conduct a blamestorming and deprive the World Health Organization of financial support,” said Leonid Slutskiy Slutskiy Leonid Eduardoviсh Slutskiy

During a pandemic that has become a global challenge and a threat to the world, the United States ”continues to think and act in its paradigm of American exclusivity,“ said the parliamentarian. “We can only hope for the awareness and responsible approach of other states in matters of supporting the WHO work,” said the head of the Committee.
