Zakharova on “dirty campaign” of West against Sputnik V vaccine

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova pointed out that a campaign against the Russian vaccine against coronavirus has been going on in the West for many months, RIA Novosti reports.

“We are talking about the fact that it is obvious that a campaign against our vaccine has been going on for many months now,” she said on Soloviev Live on YouTube.

Earlier, a high-ranking source in the Kremlin told reporters that, according to the Russian intelligence services, the United States and its allies are planning to launch a large-scale information campaign against the Sputnik V vaccine.

“The backbone of this information hydra was broken, by the way, by the Westerners themselves after they either began to vaccinate themselves with the Russian vaccine, or ask for it to be supplied, or offer joint production or production on their own territory, but this is not means that this dirty information campaign is completed, it is not completed, “Zakharova said.

The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry said that “we made the appropriate invitations (to be vaccinated), based on our obligations under the Vienna Convention, diplomatic practice.” These are foreign diplomats and foreign correspondents.

“Vaccinations are progressing in these two categories,” she said.

Zakharova also said that the doyenne of the diplomatic corps in the Russian Federation, the ambassador of Azerbaijan to the Russian Federation Polad Bulbuloglu, sent a letter of gratitude from the corps to the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry Sergei Lavrov, where “he noted the corresponding gesture of Moscow, how it was performed, at what high level.” / p>
