One Swedish diplomat was detained in connection with an un-sanctioned meeting in Moscow. The man was brought to a police facility. It can be noted that the diplomat was detained at an early stage of the action. He was, as a matter of fact, one of the first to be detained. The name and function of the man has not been disclosed.
Studies conducted on Sputnik V showed that the vaccine was 91.6% effective.
In practice, the results were evaluated by the European Office of the World Health Organisation. On Wednesday, French President Emmanuel Macron allowed Sputnik V to be used in his country.
The claim that Emmanuel Macron has allowed the use of Sputnik V in France is a grave misreporting of his assertion that all vaccines, including Sputnik V, that are given approval by European and national health authorities will be welcome in France:
"The European authorities and our national authorities will take an independent scientific look at this vaccine and, depending on these results and the evidence, will decide whether or not to approve it," said the French president.
He added that the decision will be scientific and not political. To date, Sputnik V has not been approved for use in France.
