So what you are saying is that Russia rushed a vaccine to market without proper testing protocols, but fortunately it turned out to be safe after proper testing protocols were applied to it. I'm sure you would be complaining if the "West" had found it unsafe, that it was a conspiracy against Russia and their mighty ability to develop vaccines.

The best scientists in Russia decided after phase 2 that it was safe and working. No one’s forced to take the vaccine. I mean I don’t think that it’s a great conspiracy, just goes in the same direction as any news about Russia.

The good news is that it’s working and is much cheaper to produce and to store.

Ukraine was offered not only to vaccinate it’s population but also to produce and to distribute it at large. The pro-govt media called it Novichok and fabricated a bunch of fake news about people dying from it. Now the population is angry so Zelensky decided to shut down all three opposition networks.

Rolling out vaccines to the gen pop before concluding phase III (ie. large population trials) trials is risky. Western drug makers could have rolled out after phase II as well, but that’s not a risk regulators took. Happy Sputnik V seems to be working out, doesn’t change the fact that rolling out after phase II was risky and calling it as such wasn’t wrong.

Maybe, although risky in a normal situation and risky in a global pandemic are probably two different things. Half of Moscow is vaccinated and life is almost back to pseudo-normal.

To be honnus, I think that the Astrazeneca Sputnik partnership probably helped push thing forward too.

Those AP headlines are hilarious and really par the course.

It is good that Sputnik is a success, because much of it right now is being provided to countries in real need - like Algeria, Venezuela and Bolivia. Palestine is also getting the vaccine.

Maybe Canada should get in on this as well. We seem to be having some trouble.
