The RDIF said that The Sun’s article has no scientific meaning. “Sputnik V and AstraZeneca use different platforms,” - pointed out the obvious blunder of the British edition in the department.
The British publication The Sun’s article about the theft of the AstraZeneca formula to create the Sputnik V vaccine makes no scientific sense. This is reported by the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) on Twitter.
We are talking about a British tabloid news article, which alleged that Russian hackers allegedly stole the AstraZeneca vaccine formula from the British, and then used the stolen data to create the Sputnik V drug. At the same time, the publication referred to sources in the British special services, which allegedly even have some kind of evidence.
We view these attacks as highly unethical as they undermine global vaccination efforts. They also don’t make any scientific sense as Sputnik V and AstraZeneca use different platforms,
– said in the message of the RDIF.
The fact is that AstraZeneca uses the genetically modified chimpanzee adenovirus ChAdOx1 as a platform. And “Sputnik V” was created on the basis of the human adenovirus vector platform.
