DISINFO: The West fears Sputnik V might increase Russia’s authority in the world
The Russian vaccine Sputnik V is among the best ones. However, the West continues its efforts to discredit it because it fears Russia’s reputation and authority on the international scene would increase. And they do not want that.
It is not true that the West would somehow be trying to discredit the Russian vaccine Sputnik V. On the contrary; a number of EU Member States are considering the Sputnik V vaccine and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has been providing scientific advice to the producer and since 04 March is conducting a rolling review of Sputnik V.
Any vaccine needs to be authorised following a positive opinion of the European Medicines Agency before it can be placed on the market in the EU. The Russian Gamaleya National Centre of Epidemiology and Microbiology responsible for the Russian vaccine Sputnik V had not prepared the necessary documentation earlier before the rolling review by EMA started in March and thus the review is not finalised yet.
