Kremlin says pressure on countries to reject Russian vaccine is unprecedented


The Kremlin said on Tuesday that pressure on some countries to refuse to buy Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine against Covid-19 was at unprecedented levels but had no chance of succeeding.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov made the remarks when asked to comment on a US government report which appeared to show that the United States had tried to dissuade Brazil from buying Sputnik V.

The report outlined the agency’s diplomatic efforts to counter what it described as attempts by countries, including Russia, to increase their influence in the region, to the detriment of US safety and security.

“Examples include using OGA’s Health Attache office to persuade Brazil to reject the Russian Covid-19 vaccine,” the government report said.
