European Medicines Agency (EMA) An investigation will begin next week into whether clinical trials of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine violated ethical or scientific standards.. The Financial Times published the report on Wednesday (7).

The Russian government said military and civilian personnel participated in the study. Reuters reported that some participants said their bosses pressured them to attend.

Kirill Dimitriev, head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund, which paid for the tests, told the Financial Times: “There was no pressure [sobre os participantes] Sputnik V followed all clinical procedures ”.

The EMA’s conclusion on conducting clinical trials is required before the agency can issue a ruling on Sputnik V’s approval for use in EU countries.. However, Hungary and Slovakia have already purchased Russian vaccine doses, which have been specifically approved by national governments.

Dimitriev told the British press that Spunik Five has already been approved in 59 countries.
