DISINFO: The West is financing a disinformation campaign against the Russian vaccine Sputnik V
The West is financing a disinformation campaign against the Russian anti-Covid-19 vaccine Sputnik V
It is not true that the West conducts campaigns to discredit the Russian vaccine Sputnik V.
Reservations about the Russian Sputnik V vaccine are caused by the fact that Russia didn’t complete the extensive trials which WHO insists that a vaccine must undergo involving thorough testing to examine the vaccine’s safety and efficacy before it is released. Rolling out an inadequately vetted vaccine could endanger the people receiving it. Sputnik V was met with scepticism and criticism, even by Russian specialists.
On the other hand, there is credible evidence that the Russian government pressed Russian scientists and researchers to be the first in the world to develop a vaccine against Covid-19, and did everything to shorten the process, raising concerns about the safety and efficiency of the Sputnik V vaccine.
