President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin stated that the authorities informed him about prepared information provocations against Russia that concern the fight against coronavirus as TASS reported.
“You know that many attempts were made and are being made, and I am grateful to you for information that you pass to the political leadership of the country about planned provocations in this sphere,” he said at the meeting of the FSB panel.
Meanwhile, Putin assured that ‘targeted information campaign is held [against Russia] with presumptuous and proofless accusations in the number of issues’.
“Even absurd, I'd rather say, anecdotic conspiracy theories are used to doubt our achievements in the sphere of medicine and fight against coronavirus,” the Russian president added.
Besides, Putin believes that there are attempts to block Russia by economic and other sanctions and blocking of large projects that are the interest not only for Russia.
As we reported, the Israeli government agreed to purchase Russian-made Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine for Syria. The vaccine will be purchased as part of a deal that secured the release of an Israeli woman held captive in Damascus.
