Information attacks on Sputnik V more frequent - Russia

Media attacks on the Russian Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine based on "unreliable and misleading information" have become more frequent, the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) said on Thursday.

The RDIF cited information from anonymous sources as the primary basis for the attacks. Assistant Health Minister Alexey Kuznetsov implied a connection to the manufacturers of foreign vaccines, encouraging them to turn to using the Sputnik vaccine as a booster dose instead.

"Production facilities are finalizing preparations of the additionally requested documents that are necessary for completing the process of vaccine certification by the European Medicines Agency," Kuznetsov concluded.
