I'm not sure a free Lada would motivate me to do much of anything. They are more of a booby prize. I have seen brand new ones and would rather buy a used Ford Scorpio than anything the Russians make.

Russia: spreads propaganda about how the vaccine is dangerous

Also Russia: “Why is our vaccination rate so low??”

Depends on how much people feel they can trust their own government. Too much corruption from the higher ups and cronies leads to lack of credibility and trust to the citizens of Russia.

Even the Russian people don't trust Russia's action of speedying up Sputnik V by bypassing protocols

That action backfired

Russia's vaccination rate is so low because even the Russians don't trust Russia's propaganda. You'd have to be a moron to trust the Russian media, and therefore it's impossible to believe anything they say about their 'vaccine'.

Either way, I hope the Sputnik vaccine has a better safety track record than the Western ones.

We can only hope because there's not much information from Sputnik V. The less information, the more it makes people more suspicious

The Western vaccines are being PROVEN in the real world in real-time that they're very safe. HUNDREDS of MILLIONS of people are currently being vaccinated - and very few are having serious cases (you have a better chance of being hit by lightning - 1 in 500,000)

Since they are made for Russian road, I would think Ladas break down less than Western contraptions.

Either way, I hope the Sputnik vaccine has a better safety track record than the Western ones. The VAERS figures for Pfizer, Moderna etc. are pretty shocking.
