Western security agencies’ accusations against Russia of an attempt to steal the secrets of the developed coronavirus vaccine with the help of hackers will mark the beginning of the struggle for this market, Rossa Primavera News Agency’s observer Alexey Kulepov stated on July 20.
Accusations against Russia of the intention to steal the coronavirus vaccine from the West coincided with the news about the beginning of production of the Western vaccine in Russia on July 17. It is a vaccine developed by Oxford University and the AstraZeneca PLC vaccine manufacturer.
The Russian company R-Pharm announced the signing of an agreement with AstraZeneca Plc on the production and sale of the vaccine. The R-Pharm head has stated that it will act as a hub for vaccine supplies to 30-50 countries worldwide. The deal took place with the participation of the Russian Direct Investment Fund.
The question arises, why would hackers from Russia, if this has in fact happened, try to steal the secrets of the vaccine, which will already be produced in Russia? As usual, there may be several versions in such circumstances.
The first one. In fact, there will be no real production. At best, there will be packaging and transportation to other countries. That is why Russia urgently needs to create a vaccine to save money on buying it for domestic needs.
The second variant. Russia wants to make an analogue of the western vaccine and claim it to be its own development to have time to get its own share of the market of world coronavirus vaccination.
The spice of the situation is added by the fact that Oxford University’s vaccine has been put in a specific informational context since the announcement of its development in the UK.
As it was discussed in Sergey Kurginyan’s program Meaning of the Game, AstraZeneca Plc is working closely with the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), to which the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and scientists Roy Malcolm Anderson and Neil Ferguson from Imperial College London are affiliated.
They are the authors of the prognosis, according to which hundreds of thousands of people were to die from the coronavirus and several millions were to be infected around the world.
Based on these predictions, quarantine measures were introduced around the world. This is not the first time that Anderson and Ferguson have made predictions that are radically disproved by subsequent events, but which have resulted in the introduction of unjustified anti-epidemiological measures.
Examples include their prediction of an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease in Britain, which resulted in the senseless slaughter of more than one million of livestock. The same pattern was observed in case of avian influenza. The control methods then proposed by Andersen and Ferguson are very similar to those used against the coronavirus pandemic.
As for the vaccine itself, AstraZeneca Plc said it would start production before the last stage of the tests, as the company is confident in the positive result of the tests. Obviously, the company wants to be the first to enter the coronavirus vaccine market.
If there is no clear answer to the question why Russia should steal the coronavirus vaccine from the West, another question arises: why is the West making another odious accusation?
The answer to this accusation may be apparent. What if the vaccine developed by the Russians in the Gamaleya Research Institute is in fact better than Oxford University’s vaccine? What if someone in the world dares to turn to the Russians and they share their know-how?
What could be worse for a Western vaccine, in terms of commercial success, than a more efficient analogue, the production of which would be available to the public?
