On a TV show the President Putin told –

“A vaccine against corona virus has been registered for the first time in the world this morning I know that it works quite effectively, it forms a stable immunity.”

To this Putin added that his daughter also took the vaccine and now his daughter fell well.

Many believe Russia has cut essential corners in the development of the vaccine. Even the move represents a global push to make effective vaccine for COVID-19. Moreover the making of vaccine was partly under political pressure according to the critics. A great move to portray Russia as a global scientific force.

No scientific data released on the testing by Russia. Hence top news organisations are struggling to verify the  safety or effectiveness vaccine’s.  Meanwhile Russia received an interest from other countries for over a billion doses of the vaccine said Kirill Dmitriev. Kirill Dmitriev is the head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), who is funding for the vaccine research. Moreover the officials of Russia told a news channel that 20 countries and some US companies have expressed interest in the vaccine.
