TASS, 26.02.2021

Russia’s opponents seek to undermine trust in the Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine because they are terrified of its superiority, CEO of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) Kirill Dmitriev said Friday.

"We have one of the best vaccines in the world, it is a great feat of Russian scientists, we should be proud of it. Many enemies of Russia are trying to erode trust in Russia. But we understand the reason why they put in so much effort in undermining trust in the Russian vaccine is because it is one of the best of the world, they are simply scared of it," he said.

Sputnik V is ranked among the top three vaccines around the world in the list of countries that have authorized COVID-19 jabs. It is currently registered in 37 countries with the total population of 1.1 billion.
