Wow... Russia is now facing a real major vaccine/public relations problem with ARgentinian government.
THe Argenitnian government is saying Russia failed to deliver their promised 5 million vaccines in july ,
that gamaleya institute is breaching their contract , and Russia response is like.. oh no worries and sidestep the issue , by saying the "contract will be fulfilled "
so you make a contract , with a company ,that they need to build the house in x date.
but the company fails to meet the date lines , and say ,... no worries,, we will honor our contract
So what is putin now going to do ? reverse time back , to honor his contract ?
Delays happens , everywhere , for sure , but this shows how ill prepared was Putin's Russia economy and its tiny pharma industry for a major biological event , not just un-prepared for a global scale biological event , regardless if was a man made ,military bio war or a mother nature one . but also totally unprepared for a local biological emergency too . Because Russia production rate of vaccines is just infinite small of what they need .
Didn't i told that Russia is a very outdated economy nation ?
read the next report...
putin took an abandoned soviet era car plant ,and re-used it , to build a manufacturing plant of vaccines.
So Russia , a nation with 140 millions citizens , could produce just 33 million vaccines
as late as may 15 .
And now this backward development of the country , investing most of the money Russia budget have , in pipelines to the west and military and luxury park and olympics political propaganda events , all this massive waste of money in outdated economic models ,national defense but also politics , is showing how disastrous , was the way Putin developed his country , that need to re-use soviet era car plants ,to manufacture life saving vaccines.
This incompetence , of russia pharma industry , in production capability , and to get enough qualified staff ,to work in them , is going to byte hard Russia ,at short ,medium and long term , the perception of the world about Russia reliability as a country ,they can trust for help , in case of an emergency.
In Venezuela ,the problems are even worse ,for russia , that only sends vaccines there at water drop count. 10,000 here , 20,000 there. every month.
None of this things will be happening , if Russia had the correct people , managing the nation future at the top ,a modern economy focused nation , that invest their budget in things that really matters , things that very few countries can do , or things that no one have done before and modernize their industries ,as china have been doing , non stop. Russia needs an education revolution , focus in that , and a modern industrial revolution . Putin's incredibly outdated economic model ,a commodities focused nation of energy ,mining and food is what is costing russia the pain in the ass ,and headaches is facing today.
and not mentioning ,that is also the reason ,why russia is struggling
so much in the world , to make alliances , and to convince others to respect russia interest in the world.
this is not good news , but another proof of incompetence of the Russian government.
Russia is one of the very rare nations in the world ,that fails , even when winning.
they can produce a winning vaccine , but fails big time ,in becoming a reliable nation for
doing business with.
Can do rockets to space , but fails miserably in execution if all they use them is for taxi to the iss.
can win more gold medals in olympics , but those events fails big time ,in helping russia ,improve their image in the world to pull nations into their orbit, as their president hoped . Can produce killer weapons , but they become totally useless if not used
against those attacking their military and earn respect for their nation , and nation interest.
This report is just more evidence , of the many that there is , that Rissia is an outdated nation ,
a developed and underveloped nation at the same time. Russia is a very imbalanced and innefficient and unproductive way . and this is only possible ,when is run by government ,that have no clue what is doing. It have all the scientist talent , they need to win , but fails miserably in execution ,because that talent is not used correctly in the right places ,and no investment done to produce the scientific talent Russia need in the quantity they need.
and the west is very aware of all this weakness and limitations of Russia.
this is why obama said. what does Russia make? and laugh about it. because russia is not a true
industrial power with an economy that can be called modern. And this weakness is what makes
so easy the west , to pull nations into its orbit , because russia is not an option because is a very limited industrial power ,and that is heavily dependent on the soviet era industrial infrastructure.
This report , does not help Russia crusade in the world ,to be taken seriously ,as a reliable nation
they can count in case of any emergency and security problem. COVID-19 vaccine: Here's why Russia is struggling to make Sputnik
Transforming the site of what once was a Soviet-era car factory into a state-of-the-art facility churning out Russia's COVID-19 vaccine Sputnik V was the easy bit. Making doses in bulk, finding qualified staff and getting equipment have been much bigger headaches for Moscow-based biotech firm R-Pharm and other private Russian companies picked to make the country's flagship shot to fight the pandemic.
President Vladimir Putin has trumpeted the vaccine around the world, and said in March that Russia had signed agreements for the production of 700 million doses of Sputnik V vaccine abroad. But Russia had produced just 33 million vaccines as of May 12 and exported fewer than 15 million, according to a Reuters tally that counted each vaccine as consisting of two doses.
Russia's output is much lower than the hundreds of millions being made each month by Pfizer and AstraZeneca. Interviews with four manufacturers and two people involved in the production process and Russia's supply chain highlight how difficult it is to make Sputnik V and ramp up production.
The problems are a warning to foreign partners -- including in India -- that are planning to mass produce the vaccine and those countries relying on Moscow to supply their inoculation programmes. With the United States and European countries focused on vaccinating domestic populations, Russia has stepped in the breach, offering shots to more than 50 countries, from Latin America to Asia.
Any nation in the world , will think twice after this report , before doing any business with russia.
what's good about developing many good vaccines ,if you can't produce them in meaningful numbers.?
This big problems Russia face , in their own management of their pandemic , is the best example
of the entire nation development , that is great in knowledge and great at building new things , but that fails big time in execution , because of the bad management of the government.
