It is time for the EU to recognize that xenophobia towards Russians is more important than the lives of European citizens,” wrote one of the readers.
“The only way to move the world forward is to freely communicate and exchange ideas, personnel and models. It's time to tie up with this stupid hatred – what's the difference, whose vaccine it is – American, Russian or German, it is important that it works,” said another.

Initially, Western leaders were against Sputnik V and let hundreds of billions go to the pharmaceutical companies in the US and EU. The result is zero … Now they are at the stage of partial recognition of the Russian vaccine. full recognition and purchase of a Russian product “, concluded another user.
