Seven years ago, armed clashes broke out in the centre of Kyiv when militant-nationalists from Western Ukraine were brought to Kyiv and the special forces, “Berkut”, tried to protect Ukrainians.
The West and especially the European Union have favoured the Pfizer/BioNtech vaccine extensively despite its proven side effects in comparison to Sputnik V and other Russian vaccines such as the EpiVacCorona. This is a war against Sputnik V although the Russian vaccine has proven to be more efficient.
Disinformation about vaccines.
There is no "war" against Sputnik V vaccine. Recently, Russian and British scientists teamed up to trial a combination of the Oxford-AstraZeneca and Sputnik V vaccines to see if protection against Covid-19 can be improved.
On February 2, after the disinfo message was published, interim results from a phase 3 trial of the Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine were finally published inThe Lancet. The trial results show a consistent strong protective effect across all participant age groups, meaning that the Sputnik V vaccine candidate appears safe and effective.
