Russia made the Sputnik V vaccine and showed that they could stop the pandemic themselves.
The West reacted with skepticism and indifference to this vaccine due to its ignorance of Russian scientific traditions.
The Sputnik V vaccine is a result of Russia’s historical scientific background. Western ‘storytellers’ have denied Russian scientific achievements for a long time now. Now it is surprised by the news about the creation of a drug.
The pharmaceutical companies of the US and EU are selling products at astronomical prices. Russia is not trying to get rich (selling the vaccine).
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the West and Sputnik V vaccine. This is part of a broader campaign to promote the Russian vaccine. The message traditionally includes the claim that the West is trying to discredit Sputnik V.
The critical view of the Russian vaccine is linked to the lack of transparency which accompanied its approval process. Doubts about the vaccine were expressed even by Russian specialists in the country. The reservations and criticisms of Sputnik V are caused by the fact that Russia did not complete large trials to test the vaccine’s safety and efficacy before releasing it. Rolling out an inadequately vetted vaccine could endanger people who receive it.
