It is time to start mass vaccination of residents of Russia against coronavirus infection next week, says Russian President Vladimir Putin. The head of state discussed this issue with members of the government at a meeting that took place on Wednesday, January 13, RIA Novosti reports.

He urged to start preparing the appropriate infrastructure, adding that the drug did not require any special conditions for transportation. Fortunately, Vladimir Putin noted, “everything works much easier and more efficiently with us”.

According to the head of state, it is required to build a schedule, as is done when vaccinating against other diseases, such as influenza.

The President expressed confidence that the Russian vaccine Sputnik V is the best in the world. But he clarified that it was required to figure out how the drug would act in the conditions of the existence of many strains.

Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova, in turn, added that starting Monday, it is possible to switch to a wider vaccination of the country's population.

Soviet cars are greeted with welcoming car klaxons honking on the streets of New York, Berlin or Tokyo. It's a long time since German students bought Zhiguli cars, and French farmers acquired Lada Niva. As of today, collectors are chasing Volga, Pobeda (Victory) and Moskvich (Muscovite), which are exhibited in museums and in public squares. For many foreigners, Soviet cars are curiosity and novelty, but for Russian compatriots they symbolize nostalgia and connection with their homeland.
Every year in April we commemorate the glorious day of April 12, 1961. It was the day when Yuri Gagarin, the first man of the new space era, was brought to near-earth orbit by the Vostok-1 spacecraft. The flight lasted just a little over an hour and a half, but it turned Gagarin into a figure that has been admired throughout the world ever since. The feat accomplished by Gagarin 60 years ago inspires us to recall the incredible connection of his story with Lolita Torres - a singer and one of the top actresses from Argentina's golden era of cinema.
