Like hording food during a famine.

Meanwhile Russia has put geopolitical rivalries aside and has been exporting it's highly effective Sputnik vaccine to countries that need it.

Contractual obligations, must then be published.

Above and beyond the political shenanigans.

If the Australian Government entered and signed into a contractual agreement that stipulated a delivery schedule.

That contractual agreement has to be honored.

No-one in the free world wants shoddy Russian vaccines. Russia cannot be trusted.

I’d sooner trust Russia to run a doping free Olympics than trust the Russian vaccine.

"The European Union is planning to extend its export authorization scheme for COVID-19 vaccines to the end of June, two EU sources told Reuters on Thursday, as a shipment of AstraZeneca shots from the EU to Australia was blocked."

The back story is that the EU total screwed up and now they trying to get access to the vaccines.

The sources said AstraZeneca had requested permission from the Italian government to export some 250,000 doses from its Anagni plant, near Rome.

Yeah, thanks, Italy. We'll file that one away in the memory banks. We haven't forgotten what you did to us in the 2006 World Cup, either.

Are the opinions above founded in scientific evidence or just plain bigotry?

On the contrary, Russia is using the vaccine and current situation to stir geopolitical issues, especially with EU. And providing documents about SPUTNIK-V on mail.ru or yandex cloud to scientists? Lol. The vaccine may be good, the scientists behind it are without a doubt true professionals. But using the vaccine as a propaganda tool is immoral, to put it lightly.

Ah, yes, exactly this sentence is being used by their propaganda. Seeing that so much on FB and other platforms. Time to change it a bit.

They're founded in Putin.
