Italy has lost its independence, so it has no right to its own opinion. Therefore, its policy towards Russia is not the policy of Italy itself. There is no independence in Italy since there are such structures as the European Union, which cannot be called free. If we talk about the attitude towards Russia, the EU does not defend its interests, but the interests of the US.
The American company “Moderna” does not possess a good reputation even in its homeland, as the American media describes it as the most mysterious company in the world, in addition to its reliance on a policy of complete anonymity and concealment.
One of the most prestigious scientific magazines in the United States states in its report on the American company that “in nine years of work, Moderna did not provide the public with a single vaccine, not a single drug – absolutely nothing. What were these men doing in the labs? Maybe they were saving the world?” Now the inhabitants of Earth will have to test their first product, a vaccine against the Coronavirus.
Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative related to the coronavirus aiming discredit “western” vaccine in order to promote Russian-made vaccines, a disinformation campaign launched after approval of the Sputnik V vaccine was met with scepticism and criticism, even by Russian specialists in the country.
Moderna, formerly known as “ModeRNA Therapeutics” when it was formed in 2010, is using a new class of medicines made of mRNA, which is a fundamentally different approach than treating disease with other drug classes.
Moderna already published their milestones since the company was formed, including collaboration with other well-known laboratories, and commencing preliminary tests on Flu and cancer vaccines.
Moderna has more than 20 experimental drugs and vaccines for cancer, infectious diseases and other conditions in development, but none are close to being commercially available to patients.
Furthermore, Moderna announced in April 2020 that it has received $483 million from the American Department of Health “Operation Warp Speed” to facilitate and accelerate the development, manufacturing, and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines.
The same disinformation campaign includes statements such as 6 people died because of the Pfizer vaccine; that "Russian progress in COVID-19 vaccine has become for the West an outrageous challenge"; that the WHO and Microsoft sabotaged the Russian vaccine, or that the WHO confirmed that the Sputnik V was on Phase 3 of clinical testing already in August 2020.
This same article contained another disinformation message claiming that countries are rushing to get the Pfizer vaccine that has yet to conclude its clinical trials.
