The Nature scientific journal has published an article on the Sputnik V Russian coronavirus vaccine. The journal calls the drug effective and safe, and also notes that it has not yet received approval from the World Health Organization, although it is successfully used in dozens of countries around the world, RIA Novosti reports.

The author of the article notes that Sputnik V was the first registered coronavirus vaccine in the world, and today it is used in vaccination campaigns in dozens of countries. It was approved by the authorities of Hungary, India, the United Arab Emirates, South Korea, Argentina, San Marino and many other states.

According to various international studies, the effectiveness of the Russian vaccine has been confirmed from 91.6% to 97.8%. The publication emphasizes that, unlike AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson, Sputnik V has not one, but two adenoviruses, which increases its protective features. It is noted that in countries using the Russian vaccine, no serious side effects of the vaccination campaign were reported.

Since the beginning of the unrest in Kazakhstan, some media and Telegram channels have speculated about the threat to Russians living in the Republic. Allegedly, the introduction of CSTO forces would put them in danger due to the rise of Kazakh nationalism. Izvestia talked to Russians living in the country to find out how the January events had affected their relations with Kazakhs. Interviewees claimed that the introduction of CSTO peacekeepers had no effect on interethnic dialogue because the Russians living in the Republic were not associated with Russia - they were locals. However, according to Izvestia's interlocutors, there is still intolerance at the mundane level.
