Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Moscow condemns France for discriminatory statements about Russian vaccines. She wrote about this in her Telegram-channel.
Earlier, the Secretary of State at the French Foreign Ministry, Clement Bon, called on the EU countries to abandon the use of drugs against COVID-19 from Russia, China and several other countries. “Be careful, say no to these vaccines,” he said and expressed regret that Greece is allowing passengers who have been vaccinated against coronavirus with Russian and Chinese drugs on its territory.
“The Secretary of State of the French Foreign Ministry is not a virologist to lecture on this subject to sovereign states, linking medicine with nationality. This is more of the functional responsibilities of Dr. Goebbels (Nazi German propaganda minister – approx. “Tapes. Ru”) “, – Zakharova emphasized and clarified that Bon’s statements” revive the spirit of neo-Nazi segregation in Europe. “
According to a spokesman for the Foreign Ministry, the French foreign ministry is offended for its power, which has failed to develop its own vaccine. “We sympathize with the failure of France,” she concluded.
At the same time, on July 9, the research director of the French Medical Research Institute INSERM Marie-Paul Chieny confirmed the effectiveness of “Sputnik V”.
