    Correct me if I am wrong but as far as I understand vaccines are produced at specilized facilities from which there is a limited number arround the world. Meaning if one wants to produce X vaccine they should either build new facility that will cost a lot of money and time, or free up slots at an existent facility. So producing  Sputnik V in Germany would actually be at the expense of their own Phizer vaccine maybe?
    Which makes no sense.
    I think AstraZeneca´s instalations are more viable shot as their vaccine sucks anyway but combined with Sputnik it became pretty decent. Or at least they were testing it sometime ago.

    Actually western states have much higher % of vaccinated population compared to Russia. The correct question here would be why the country that discovered the first COVID vaccine in the world has lower ammount of vaccinated population than say Portugal or Finland.

    Keep refining your soft-trolling skills, your current attempts are a bit too obvious thumbsup

    Well for one thing Russia is not in lockdown,they haven't lost control of pandemic and there are no shortages of vaccine there

    Everyone who wants to get vaccine can do it without appointment or wait period and also gets ice cream as a bonus

    And they have more than enough left for export



    EU on the other hand is on complete opposite situation (even ice cream is not pro bono)

    Don't be so harsh to them. In fact every state has similar agency and such process takes place before they start using random drug among their population. Problem with EU is that they are so SLOW. Of course in this case it is on purpose. If the west pharma companies didnt have those issues with supply of vaccines, Sputnik V would have never been even discussed as valid option for EU.

    Thousands of people in the EU are dying every day to this virus and so they delayed testing a Russian vaccine to protect their own pharma companies....

    I don't think calling them clowns is harsh enough... except if he means the clown in Stephen Kings "IT" stories... then he is probably bang on.

    Also pretty sure EU adminsitration is using the Sputnik V aproval process to push up deliveries from AstraZeneca and Phizer, like " Get your shit together or else we will be giving our money to that russian company instead".

    Blackmail... again another virtue...

    Finally even if EU would aprove Sputnik V right now, it is not like Russia could deliver anything meaningful to EU. Sputnik V production is booked for months ahead already by other countries and Russia itself.

    Sputnik V is a straight forward design, they should be able to ramp up their own production very easily and very quickly and probably produce enough for their own needs and the needs of other countries..... but they are not interested in saving lives...

    So all this is just show, nothing else.

    Unnecessary political bullshit from the political bullshit professionals and experts... that is what they do and all they do.

    Why are they clowns? They protect their business, technology and money. Is Russia buying Phizer´s vaccines? Or maybe AstraZeneca´s? Why should EU do it then?

    They are delaying access to effective and proven vaccines on political grounds... fuck the money, those pharma companies already make too much money and spend most of it bribing doctors and health professionals into prescribing their junk to people who don't need it... some of the drugs they sell are the equivalent of Crack, but because a doctor prescribes it it is OK... and they make a lot of money too.

    Correct me if I am wrong but as far as I understand vaccines are produced at specilized facilities from which there is a limited number arround the world.]

    Most countries have facilities to produce vaccines that are not brand new state of the art experimental ones that have to be stored at minus 80 degrees... mass production and distribution of Sputnik V would be much cheaper much faster and much easier... but it is Russian.

    You don't need a new production facility for each new vaccine... that is like needing a whole new factory to make a different flavour cheese.

    Cheese making factories can pretty much handle making almost any type of cheese.

    So producing Sputnik V in Germany would actually be at the expense of their own Phizer vaccine maybe?

    The Pfviser vaccine is expensive and complex and demanding in terms of creating, storing and transportation and is not more effective than Sputnik V though there have been negative side effects, but none that I am aware of with Sputnik V.

    EU on the other hand is on complete opposite situation (even ice cream is not pro bono)

    Indeed, even foreign diplomats in Russia and news reporters who said Sputnik V was rushed and corners were cut and not properly tested asked for and got vaccinated when the US government said it couldn't provide the necessary vaccinations for them...

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s RDIF sovereign wealth fund has signed an agreement with Swiss-based pharmaceutical company Adienne to produce the Sputnik V vaccine against COVID-19 in Italy, the Italian-Russian chamber of commerce said in a statement.

    The chamber said in a statement issued on Monday, a public holiday in Russia, that the move paved the way for the creation of the first Sputnik V production facility in Europe, with plans for Italian production to begin in June.

    It said it hoped that 10 million doses of Sputnik V could be produced in Italy by the end of the year.

    Guys in Brussels desperately need a vaccine for heart attack lol!

    EMA head’s ‘Russian roulette’ remark on Sputnik V ‘regrettable, incorrect’ — Kremlin
    March 9

    The spokesman underscored that Sputnik V is one of the most popular vaccines in the world.

    MOSCOW, March 9. /TASS/. Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov criticized the remark by European Medicines Agency (EMA) Chairwoman Christa Wirthumer-Hoche, who compared the idea of emergency authorizations of the Sputnik V vaccine to "playing Russian roulette," as incorrect and regrettable.

    "As for this regrettable statement, it is incorrect to say the least. The demand for the vaccine and the vaccination campaigns in many countries indicate its relevance and popularity," Peskov told journalists Tuesday.

    Earlier on March 9, developers of the Sputnik V vaccine demanded an apology from the EMA chairwoman for comparing the Russian vaccine authorization to "playing Russian roulette."

    Peskov redirected the question on prospects of production of the vaccine in Italy to the Russian Direct Investment Fund. According to the spokesman, "several countries establish production chains, which will largely help to satisfy the growing demand of the external market."

    The spokesman underscored that Sputnik V is one of the most popular vaccines in the world. "There could be no doubts at this point that this is one of the most popular and trusted vaccines in the world," he added.
    Earlier, the media reported that the Direct Investment Fund plans to cooperate with Switzerland’s Adienne Pharma & Biotech in order to produce Sputnik V in Italy. According to the Fund’s Director Kirill Dmitriev, the production in Italy may begin in June, making it possible to vaccinate up to 700 million people before the end of this year. He also disclosed that the Fund would have announced 20 cooperation projects in 10 countries before the end of March. In particular, the Fund discusses cooperation with Germany and France.

    On March 4, EMA announced the examination procedure for the Sputnik V vaccine. The agency stated that it would test the vaccine’s compliance with the EU standards for efficiency, safety and quality. A number of EU countries have already authorized the use of Sputnik V on their own without waiting for approval from the EMA. Currently, the vaccine is registered in Hungary and Slovakia.

    The Russian vaccine’s efficiency is estimated at 91.6%, a figure confirmed by the relevant publication in The Lancet, one of the world’s oldest and most respected medical journals.

    Politicization of vaccines

    Moscow has always been against the politicization of any issues related to vaccines, Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday.

    According to the spokesman, Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine is highly effective against COVID-19. "Despite this, our vaccine faces criticism, some of it aspiring to be objective while the rest not even trying to be objective but rather being ungrounded, on a daily basis," he noted.

    State Department attacked "Sputnik V" from an unexpected side
    March 9, 2021

    The US State Department said that the Russian special services are waging an information war with Western vaccines through several little-known sites. This is obvious nonsense, but now this nonsense is needed by the US and the EU in order not to lose in the "vaccine war".

    What would later be called "vaccine war" was inevitable. Capitalism, for all its advantages, simply did not assume that the manufacturers of highly demanded drugs that hit the market almost simultaneously would not enter into fierce competition with each other. A picture where companies from different countries and their lobbyists in the government would join hands to save humanity from a pandemic together, without playing along with their own and without putting a spoke in the wheels of strangers, is desirable, but too idealistic - humanity is not yet ready for this, which is demonstrates to us on a variety of other issues.

    Idealistic and such a situation, when the governments of those few countries that could afford to produce their own vaccine, will remain on the sidelines of this capitalist struggle and will not participate in it. This does not work even in the case of countries under the leadership of the Communist Party: China seems to be not our enemy, on the contrary, it is a reliable partner and strategic ally, but it is in no hurry to register Russian vaccines, promoting its own.

    Relying on Washington and Brussels in this regard is all the more strange. Considering how the coronavirus plowed the entire planet, becoming the main topic of the year (and there, you see, decades), there is no need to prove that a vaccine that saves lives of individuals and restores normal life to society as a whole is both prestige and big money. According to the US and EU strategy to "contain Russia", Russia should have neither prestige nor money.

    That is why a "vaccine war" is being waged - both in the bureaucratic and in the information space. The Russian drug "Sputnik V" is holding up well (the second most popular vaccine against COVID-19 in the world, by the way), but it is forced to take numerous external blows , the strength of which will be determined by the conscience of the striker. For example, such as the attacks of the Ukrainian president on the Russian vaccine.

    But in Slovakia, Prime Minister Igor Matovic showed himself wiser in the vaccine issue, promising not to allow Slovaks to become hostages of geopolitical conflicts. Nevertheless, the ruling coalition in the country consists of several parties, some of which are openly putting pressure on Matovich and demanding that he refuse to buy vaccines on the grounds that this is a "hybrid weapon of Russia".

    Move on. Representative of the Austrian Health Agency Christa Virtumer-Hoch (concurrently chairman of the European Medicines Agency or EMA, where Sputnik V is currently undergoing an examination), speaking of the possible registration of a Russian vaccine in her homeland, compared it to “Russian roulette”. Here already its creators could not stand it - and demanded an apology.

    It is possible to move geographically from the Russian borders to the West and further - there are more than enough examples of a Russian drug becoming the target of attacks from high-ranking officials and politicians. But it is better to go straight to the United States, whose participation in the "vaccine war" has its own characteristics.

    The chief US infectious disease specialist, Anthony Fauci, although he is an adviser to President Biden, is still far enough from politics to praise the Russian vaccine . But the State Department, as a department directly responsible for the conduct of the foreign policy line, cannot afford this, and is still embarrassed to act in the spirit of Volodymyr Zelensky, so his blow within the framework of the "vaccine war" was the accusation of Russia in its conduct.

    At first, The Wall Street Journal wrote about this with reference to its sources, then the representative of the US State Department Ned Price confirmed everything officially. Allegedly, the special services of the Russian Federation are trying to discredit the coronavirus vaccines developed by Western companies.

    Earlier, our old opponent, the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, spoke in the same spirit, speaking at the hearings of the European Parliament's special committee on foreign interference in the EU's democratic processes. That is, we can talk about the coordinated position of the West on this issue.

    However, Borrell was careful - he accused the "Kremlin media" of disinformation, without specifying which ones. The Americans, for the sake of better effect from their "revelations", decided to go in particular. This discredited their whole venture.

    In the State Department's version, the information campaign against Western vaccines has turned into an operation by the Russian special services. At the same time, both the media and the special services that allegedly stand behind them were named: New Eastern Outlook and Oriental Review (SVR), News Front (FSB) and Rebel Inside (Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces, in Western media usually appearing as the GRU).

    It is easy to accept that the Russian media, as they say, "cheer for ours" and publish news about the failures of competing vaccines. Sometimes it bears the imprint of its own economic interests, when online publications fight for "yellow traffic" and try to get promoted by loud and revealing headlines or some radical speakers claiming that vaccination in the West is Bill Gates' chipping.

    It is easy to imagine that Russian state authorities, including special services, are participants in an information war - usually a defensive one when it comes to the Russian vaccine. There, no worse than in the West, they understand everything about money, and about prestige, and about competition. But it is impossible to believe that the SVR, FSB and GRU are involved in this by posting fakes on little-known resources. While at war, they shoot from a slingshot.

    There are many state-owned media outlets and entire media empires in Russia. At the service of the Russian authorities are specialists in PR, promotion and information campaigns. They have long been able to do everything the same as in the West, and if desired and necessary, qualified people will be able to organize a full-scale information attack on all Western vaccines and each separately. But in the picture of the world of the State Department, Russian special services, sharpened for completely different and much more ambitious tasks, are engaged in little-known media outlets with what journalists usually call "posting".

    Obviously, the essence of Western manipulation is to work out the topic of Russia's “aggressive aspirations” in a different way. To connect the topic of vaccines with the Russian special services, endowed in the same West with an ominous image of almost omnipotent offices. This simultaneously casts a shadow on the Russian drug, making it an unwitting participant in the "conspiracy", and, as it were, justifies the information war waged against Sputnik V by Western officials.

    For a layman in the US or the EU, it is not at all obvious that the State Department's accusations are curious. They sound gloomy enough so as not to ask once again the question whether this fierce struggle with the Russian vaccine is in his, the layman's interests.

    As follows from publications in other media, which are kept in a tone that is more loyal to the achievements of Russian science, many ordinary people are beginning to suspect something. The statements of politicians and officials are too much at odds with the position of specialized vaccine experts . If so, you need to create the illusion that you are opposing the conspiracy of the Russian special services, who for some reason decided to try their hand at journalism.

    That is, on the contrary, it would not be necessary, it turned out stupid. But the war, as you know, will write off everything, including the "vaccine war".

    The US spy agency commanders blame Russia for politicising vaccines after all the shit they put out about the Russian vaccine they are worried that it didn't stick, but the shit about their own vaccines is sticking and it is making them look bad... well perhaps they should have spent a bit longer and made better vaccines... I mean if a third world gas station of a country that doesn't make anything can make three different ones so far, you would think the west could manage one decent one.

    BTW extra amusing that Sputnik V is compared with Russian Roulette... because Russian Roulette is a British invention. The most common and most widely used Russian revolver is the Nagant, which has seven chambers not 6 and the mechanism means the chambers can't spin around like a roulette wheel because it is a gas sealed revolver... so playing Russian roulette with the standard Russian revolver is not possible and even if it was it would be one in seven rather than one in six.

    I heard somewhere that "Russian" roulette was some US concoction and popularized there. Americans love to use the names of other countries
    for what they consider to be not particularly good. Thus we had the "Spanish" flu which came from the USA.

    MarketWatch: Sputnik V's efficiency has surpassed Russia's wildest expectations
    Stanislav Blokhin
    March 7, 2021

    The West is following with interest Russia's diplomatic maneuvers against the backdrop of huge demand for the Sputnik V vaccine. This is reported by the American edition of MarketWatch. PolitRussia presents an exclusive retelling of this publication.

    In August last year, the West was skeptical about the Russian Sputnik V vaccine, and six months later it has to watch the growing global demand for it. Today analysts are wondering if Moscow will be able to cope with so many applications from around the world for this drug.

    “Millions of doses are expected by the countries of Latin America, Africa, the former Soviet Union and the Middle East in the wake of Russian vaccine diplomacy,” the authors of MarketWatch note.

    At first, the West harshly criticized Sputnik V, but after the experts of the prestigious British medical journal The Lancet recognized the effectiveness of the vaccine, there were fewer attacks on the Russian Federation. Experts believe that Russia can take advantage of this situation to improve its image in Western countries, now it will be associated with a scientific power that is capable of charity. This is especially true now, when rich countries are buying up all consignments of Western analogues of the Russian Sputnik V, and manufacturers are trying to satisfy this demand.

    "They (Russia - approx.)" Have surpassed their wildest dreams that this vaccine will indeed become a viable and marketable product, "said global health specialist Judy Twigg.

    According to estimates of the London-based research and development company Airfinity, Russia has agreed to ship about 392 million doses abroad. Also, negotiations are underway on additional consignments, which will amount to another 356 million doses. Analysts of the American edition stated that Russia won the gold medal for the creation of a very effective drug. Now Moscow faces an even bigger challenge: it needs to meet the incredible demand for Sputnik V.

    This will not happen

    Russian image will remain unchanged no matter how well this vaccines does

    Just Westerners full of their own shit:

    Today analysts are wondering if Moscow will be able to cope with so many applications from around the world for this drug.

    Are these monkeys even aware that Russia is planing Sputnik V to be produced locally by the interested countries?

    "They (Russia - approx.)" Have surpassed their wildest dreams that this vaccine will indeed become a viable and marketable product, "said global health specialist Judy Twigg.

    Of course not, they knew what they were developing and the intrinsic effectiveness, safety and convenience of the vaccine, and therefore the possible demand for it... not every positive outcome of a Russian endeavour is a fluke you morons...

    US plans major smear campaign against Russian anti-Covid products, Kremlin source says

    This is an attempt to diminish the contribution of Russian science to the global fight against COVID-19, the source said.

    MOSCOW, March 12. /TASS/. The US and its allies plan a large-scale smear campaign aimed at discrediting Russian anti-Covid products amid rising demand for the Sputnik V vaccine, a high-level Kremlin source told TASS Friday.

    "According to our intelligence agencies, the US and its allies intend to arrange a large-scale disinformation campaign, aimed at fueling a biased attitude against our scientific innovations in fighting the spread of coronavirus infections as demand grows for the Russian Sputnik V vaccine across the world, including in European countries," the source said.

    US actions aimed to discredit Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine are an attempt to diminish the contribution of Russian science to the global fight against COVID-19, the source said.

    "Such actions of the US and its allies demonstrate their attempts to diminish the contribution of Russian science to the global fight against the spread of COVID-19, to undermine the trust of the international community in our research developments and hinder their certification by the World Health Organization, as well as to lower foreign demand for the Sputnik V vaccine, which is ranked second on the number of countries that approved it," the source said.

    The campaign will target those European nations that have registered Russia’s Sputnik V anti-coronavirus vaccine, according to the source.

    "European countries that authorized the Russian Sputnik V vaccine for emergency use have been chosen as a target of the anti-Russian information campaign. They are Hungary, Slovakia, Serbia, Montenegro, San Marino, and North Macedonia," the source said, citing the data from Russia’s security and intelligence service indicating that the United States and its allies plan to unleash an information campaign to form biased attitudes to Russian anti-COVID developments.

    According to the source, the West is gearing up for a scenario for a smear campaign attack on Sputnik V by faking mass deaths after its alleged use.

    "A scenario of information attack on Sputnik V is being prepared through controlled non-governmental organizations (the US Agency for International Development, Soros’ foundation, Thomson Reuters Foundation) and media structures (BBC, Reuters, Internews). [The attack] aims to substantiate the promoted theses about "the vaccine’s inefficiency and danger’ by faking mass deaths allegedly caused by the use of the medicine," he said.

    The US is aggressively promoting the Pfizer vaccine, imposing exploitative terms on buyer countries through “bullying” at the highest level, the source told TASS.

    "The US is engaged in an unprecedentedly aggressive policy of promoting its Pfizer vaccine, seeking not only to waive all monetary compensation in case of side effects, but all the monetary responsibility for the producer’s negligence, including manufacturing defects and violations of storage conditions,” the source revealed.

    According to the source, the US imposes exploitative terms on vaccine buyer countries. In particular, this was the case with Argentina. Initially, this Latin American country agreed to Washington’s terms, but later refused to sign the contract, after receiving new demands to guarantee expenses coverage, slamming the US tactic as being "held to ransom” and “high-level bullying,” the source said.

    "According to the UK’s Bureau of Investigative Journalism, Argentina initially agreed to these exploitative terms, but the US later rolled out new demands to provide sovereign guarantees of coverage of expenses, using state assets, including federal bank reserves, diplomatic mission buildings and even military bases as collateral,” the source said.

    The US exerted pressure on Brazil in order not to buy 'malign' Sputnik V Russian vaccine.
    By John McEvoy

    As Brazil’s death toll from the Covid-19 pandemic nears 275,000, documents reveal that Washington pressured the Brazilian government not to buy Russia’s “malign” Sputnik V vaccine – a decision which may have costed many thousands of lives.

    Malign influences

    The US Department of Health and Human Services recently published its Annual Report for 2020.

    “2020 was one of the most challenging years in the history of our country and in the history of the Department of Health and Human Services”, former US Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar introduces the report.

    “There is an end to the pandemic in sight”, he continues, “with the delivery of safe and effective vaccines through Operation Warp Speed”.

    Tucked away on page 48, the report shockingly reveals how the US pressured Brazil to reject Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine.

    Under the subheading “Combatting malign influences in the Americas”, the report announces:

    OGA used diplomatic relations in the Americas region to mitigate efforts by states, including Cuba, Venezuela, and Russia, who are working to increase their influence in the region to the detriment of US safety and security. OGA coordinated with other U.S. government agencies to strengthen diplomatic ties and offer technical and humanitarian assistance to dissuade countries in the region from accepting aid from these ill intentioned states. Examples include using OGA’s Health Attaché office to persuade Brazil to reject the Russian COVID-19 vaccine, and offering CDC technical assistance in lieu of Panama accepting an offer of Cuban doctors.

    It is also striking that the US dissuaded Panama from accepting Cuban doctors, who have been on the global front line against the pandemic, working in over 40 countries.

    As well as Brazil, the US has despatched Health Attachés to China, India, Mexico and South Africa, likely charged with carrying out similar activities.

    The documents demonstrate how Washington views global health in strict power terms, willing to sacrifice countless lives in order to deny Official Enemies a soft power victory.

    Catastrophic response

    Brazil has suffered the world’s second-worst number of Covid-19 death rates, with Bolsonaro’s Covid-19 policy being described as “homicidally negligent”.

    Throughout 2020, the Brazilian government consistently refused to pursue any vaccine but AstraZeneca’s, baffling medical experts.

    A group of Brazilian mayors urged Health Minister Eduardo Pazuello to resign, writing: “His leadership did not believe in vaccination as a way out of the crisis and did not carry out the necessary planning for the acquisition of vaccines”.

    With deaths soaring, Bolsonaro eventually and belatedly opened discussions for the delivery of Sputnik V vaccines.

    Secret documents published by Brasil Wire also revealed that the UK had lobbied Brazil on behalf of AstraZeneca as well as British mining firms, showing that the US is not the only country leveraging power on behalf of pharmaceutical multinationals in Latin America.

    This is only the latest scandalous episode in Bolsonaro’s handling of the pandemic, and malign US interference in the region.

    Since the United States have been relentless in their efforts to prop up regimes both in Europe and Asia that are anti Russian/ anti Chienese, I believe that it is only fair for both countries to support anti American political forces in America's backyard. attack
