FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Covid-19 in Russia: A health disaster driven by lack in trust in authorities • FRANCE 24 English” – below is their description.

Russia is one of the countries with the lowest vaccination rates and highest Covid-19 death rates in the world. With just over 30 percent of the population vaccinated, the Russian authorities’ vaccination campaign has been deemed a fiasco. And yet when Vladimir Putin announced the launch of the Sputnik V vaccine in summer 2020, it was supposed to “save humanity from Covid”. More than a year later, the jab has still not arrived on the European market and the majority of Russians do not trust it.
