The 1 + 1 media group has begun broadcasting public service adverts with calls of the heads of some religious organizations to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
The TV channels of the 1 + 1 media group have begun broadcasting videos with the leaders of a number of religious organizations in Ukraine, calling for vaccination against coronavirus, reports the website coronavirus.tsn.ua.
In particular, since October 23, the media group has shown video messages from the head of the UGCC Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the mufti of the spiritual administration of Muslims of Ukraine "Ummah" Said Ismagilov, the chief rabbi of Kyiv Yonatan Markovich and the "priest" of the OCU Georgy Kovalenko.
