Russian president Vladimir Putin believes that Russian vaccine is effective and works flawlessly. In his opinion, this distinguishes it from the UK vaccine . Putin stated this during the Investment Forum on October 29.
Putin said that the Russian vaccine was working flawlessly, but the vaccine from the UK "with some glitches" "because of the monkey adenovirus." And Russian vaccine, unlike the British one, is prepared on the basis of the human adenovirus. And he clarified that the third coronavirus vaccine is already on the way in Russia, but there is a problem with production. But there is a plan to come to an agreement with foreign states on the mass production of the Russian vaccine, which has all the conditions and the necessary equipment.
"We know that many European countries have signed contracts for the supply of vaccines from the UK. Unfortunately, there are some failures. They make their vaccine based on the monkey adenovirus (chimpanzee). And our specialists do it on the basis of the human adenovirus. This is a launch vehicle. as experts say, in order to deliver the necessary components to the cell of a living organism - a person. And it works effectively, we do not have a single serious failure in this area, " the President of the Russian Federation believes.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine is not going to buy the Russian vaccine against Covid-19 because it has not passed the third stage of clinical trials.
"There is no evidence that this vaccine has passed all phases of clinical trials, especially the third one. We know that there are many vaccine manufacturers in the world that are just in the final stages of clinical trials. That is why there is not even a subject for discussion,” Minister of Health Maksym Stepanov stated.
