(International relations) – Russia goes ahead and forward in its journey to find COVID-19 vaccine. So how can Russia steal American technology and the West?
Russia becomes the first country to approve the COVID-19 preventive vaccine
According to Reuters, on August 11, 2020, Russian President Vladimir Putin held a meeting with government officials, announcing Russia’s registration of the first vaccine worldwide against coronavirus infection.
Thus, Russia became the first country in the world to have licensed the COVID-19 preventive vaccine after less than 2 months of public clinical trials on humans.
This is a proud achievement of the Russian medical industry and an important achievement of Russian medicine in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic that is causing a complete crisis, even threatening life. bridge.
Speaking at a meeting with televised government officials, Putin said the registered vaccine was a vaccine studied by the Gamaleya Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology in Moscow.

During the clinical trial period, the Gamaleya vaccine was found to be very safe and effective, said the head of the Kremlin. Putin even revealed that one of his two daughters was also tested by the vaccine.
“I know that the vaccine from the Gamaleya Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology works quite effectively, builds up a strong immunity and I repeat, it has passed all the necessary tests,” Russian leaders stressed.
The Russian announcement of the registration of the first COVID-19 preventive vaccine comes as surveys around the world have shown a growing public confidence in governments’ efforts to rapidly produce vaccines like that.
Currently, more than 100 possible vaccines are being developed around the world to try to prevent the COVID-19 pandemic. According to World Health Organization data, at least four vaccines are in the final stages of clinical trials in humans.
Before the Russian release of the results, Western scientists expressed concern about the pace of Russian vaccine development, suspecting Russian medical researchers may have “burned the stage” under pressure from themselves. permission.
Because President Putin himself has made the goal of finding the COVID-19 preventive vaccine a top priority, in the context that Russia is the fourth-largest epidemic zone in the world and Russia currently has nearly 900,000 cases and more than 15,000 deaths. .
“But Russia’s rapid approach, with just three months of vaccine testing, is very different from Western Europe and the US, where researchers typically run a third phase of testing over months to ensure safety and effective, “according to Reuters.
The Russian Ministry of Health said that the mass production of the COVID-19 preventive vaccine will start in September 2020, the mass vaccination may begin in October 2020, and will provide “millions of doses” per month. next year.
In fact, Russia has had many achievements on vaccines, such as creating Ebola vaccines that have been licensed by the government for use in emergencies, and are expected to soon be deployed in Congo. Therefore, finding COVID-19 vaccine is entirely within the capabilities of the Russian medical community.

Russia earlier in the COVID-19 vaccine journey, US-Western intelligence attempted to fail
After announcing the Gamaleya vaccine registration, President Putin thanked everyone who developed the COVID-19 preventive vaccine and described it as “a very important step forward for the world” .
However, the thanks of the Russian leader, the achievements of the Russian health sector and the achievements of Russian medicine that helped Russia earlier in the journey to find the COVID-19 preventive vaccine are a disgrace to the world. US-Western intelligence.
By July 16, British, US and Canadian intelligence simultaneously accused the Russian hacker group APT29 of attacking academic facilities and pharmaceutical research data systems related to COVID vaccine development. -19, according to AP.
The APT29 group, also known as Cozy Bear, has been accused of meddling in the US presidential election in 2016. The research databases that were hacked are not disclosed, but Russian intelligence is alleged. behind this action.
The 16-page report of the UK National Cyber Security Center (NCSC) said that the APT29 group used WellMess and WellMail malware to attack the COVID-19 preventive vaccine research facilities.
“It is unacceptable that Russian intelligence agencies are targeting efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic,” British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab accused Moscow, saying that Moscow was pursuing “selfish interests. with reckless behavior “.
Meanwhile, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany announced that the United States is working closely with its allies “to ensure that we will take measures to keep information safe”.
The chairman of the US House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, said: “Russia’s malicious cyber activities, as well as other destabilizing activities” continued after being discovered. He suggested President Donald Trump formally condemn Moscow.
|Russia always shows its sincerity to partners|
The warnings from the US, UK and Canada about cybercrime are aimed at studying highly detailed COVID-19 preventive vaccines including the hacker group names and security vulnerabilities declared by the team. waterfall.
Before the “drawing from the sky”, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, denied all charges.
Mr. Peskov stressed that Russia does not have any connection to the cyber attacks reported by the Western intelligence three countries.
“We have no information about who has hacked the networks of pharmaceutical companies and research centers in the UK, US, and Canada. We can confirm that: Russia has nothing to do with those incidents.”
According to Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov, Russia itself is working hard to self-study 26 types of COVID-19 preventive vaccines, some of which have progressed very well and will soon end the phase of the first clinical trial. father.
From here there aroused suspicions that US-Western intelligence accused the Russian journalism behind Russian hackers stealing the COVID-19 preventive vaccine research database on purpose, but the purpose was to rob of Russia. By:
first, the COVID-19 mortality rate in Russia is much lower than in the US and in other West, and Moscow’s figures have been skeptical.
Monday, conspiracy theories from President Putin’s enthusiasm for Russia to help Western countries fight COVID-19.
Sequencing the events, it is not difficult to realize that an “anti-Russian chorus” in the COVID-19 pandemic has many levels, which Moscow is accused of borrowing the game of “humanitarian politicization” to find an approach. Western medical secrets.
Then, having launched the fire and found the way to move, the Kremlin used Russian hacker groups to attack the database systems of the US and the West to control the COVID-19 pandemic. announced.
|But still skeptical of the conspiracy theories of US-Western intelligence|
From that it can be understood, for the US and the West, the low death / number of Covid-19 infections in Russia is not due to the effective health system, but to conceal the truth. will be legalized by stealing achievements from the US-West.
This completely denies the merits and achievements of the Russian health sector, including research into the COVID-19 preventive vaccines. Because Moscow has done research successfully, it is also seen as stealing technology from the US-West.
However, the director of the Gamaleya Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology said that the coronavirus vaccine study has been conducted by the Russian medical community since the 20th century and that now Russia can mass produce the vaccine during the pandemic. rife.
Thus, Russia has gone ahead and has come forward in the journey to find the COVID-19 preventive vaccine. So how can Russia steal American technology and the West? Obviously, US-Western intelligence wanted to rob Russia, but failed.
