But the EU is also having to fend off growing interest by some of its hard-hit member states -- such as Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and possibly Austria -- in Russia's Sputnik V vaccine."

Yes, because only "freedom fighting" western vaccines should be used...potential lives saved in those member states are not as important as geo-politics.

But the head of the EMA's management board, Christa Wirthumer-Hoche, warned on Austrian television that EU countries authorizing it before the process was complete would be playing "Russian roulette" with their citizens' health.

Why? millions in non EU countries have already been vaccinated by the Russian vaccine, doesnt seem to be inferior to the western onces. But it was made by "big bad" Putin,s Russia so...you know....

Vaccines not proven for mutations, no data on how long they last, research pointing out vaccinated people can spread the various virus mutations, deaths and side effects.

The immunity from the natural infection is not proven either against the mutations, but unless you begin to see cluster of re-infections (or symptomatic disease after vaccination) that is indirect proof the immunity is working even against them.

Research clearly indicates immunized people have less risk of death and side effect and produce less spreading than unvaccinated people that get infected, that is enough to recommend the vaccines.
