The United States has chosen Russia as an enemy for the countries of Eastern and Central Europe in order to facilitate its “crowd management” over the region. From time to time, it is necessary for the USA to provide some arguments for public opinion [confirming that Russia is an enemy]. That is why the Skripal case was invented, a narrative about Russian interference in the US elections appeared, a coup d’état in Ukraine was organised. The situation with Alexey Navalny sends a message that the Russian authorities use military gas on its own territory and against their own citizens.
Russia expands production of the Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine beyond Russia. There is great humanitarian interest in the vaccine and it is also a great business opportunity. Russia will supply the vaccine to Latin America in December, and production will be in the millions from January.
The claim advances recurring pro-Kremlin narratives concerning the coronavirus pandemic and Russian superiority. The WHO recently published a landscape of candidate COVID-19 vaccines, which considered the Russian project as being in Phase 1 of clinical testing as Russia hasn’t completed large trials to test the vaccine’s safety and efficacy. The vaccine given could even be harmful to people, as its research is far from complete.
