The first batch of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine was released in Vietnam, TASS reports. The local pharmaceutical company Vabiotech explained that the drug created at their production facilities had already been examined at the Russian Gamaleya Center.

Vabiotech President Do Tuan Dat noted that the vaccine would be used in the national immunization program. He is sure that now the residents of the country will have an access to a high-quality drug, which will make it possible to fight the pandemic more effectively.

Vietnam sent a test batch to the Gamaleya Institute for quality assessment back in July. 

The head of Vabiotech hopes that the cooperation with the Russian Direct Investment Fund will enable the company to provide Vietnam and other countries of Southeast Asia with the high-quality and affordable vaccine against coronavirus.

A significant contribution to the development of professional sports in Europe has been made by Russian players who stepped into the sporting field under the guidance of their parents either at home or in a strange land. Emigrants founded clubs, played at packed stadiums as if they had been sports superstars, and led teams to championships as coaches and managers. Sports clubs are still established by our compatriots today.
A bear dressed in kosovorotka and bast shoes playing balalaika is one of the strongest Russian stereotypes. In reality, bears live in Russian woods or zoos, kosovorotkas and bast shoes could be traced in museums and at folk concerts. In contrast, the balalaika has won its unique place not only on concert posters but also at an international stage, in concert halls, jazz and rock clubs.
