MOSCOW, March 13 – RIA Novosti. The spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, indicated that for many months there has been a campaign in the West against the Russian vaccine against coronavirus.
“We are talking about the fact that it is obvious that the campaign against our vaccine has been going on for many months,” she said on Soloviev Live on YouTube.
Earlier, a senior Kremlin source 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 began either to vaccinate themselves with the Russian vaccine, or to ask for it to be supplied, or to offer joint production or production on their own territory, but this does not mean that this dirty information campaign, it is completed, it is not completed, “Zakharova said.
An official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry said that “we made appropriate invitations (to be vaccinated), based on our obligations under the Vienna Convention, diplomatic practice.” We are talking about foreign diplomats and foreign correspondents.
“Vaccination is going on in the most active way 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 Bulbul oglu, sent a letter of gratitude from the corps to the name of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, where “he noted the corresponding gesture of Moscow, how it was performed, at what high level.”
