Readers of the British newspaper Daily Mail criticized the vaccination policy in the European Union under an article by Tim Stickings, noting that aid from Russia could allegedly lead to the collapse of the EU.
According to the author of the material, on the eve of the Federal Republic of Germany approved the AstraZeneca vaccine against coronavirus for people over 65 years old after the initial ban on its use. This, Stickings said, will speed up the stumbling vaccination program. Also, the EU has found “another lifebuoy,” the journalist writes, referring to the beginning of the examination of the registration dossier of the Russian vaccine “Sputnik V” by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).
The author noted that in Germany they are calling for the use of the Russian drug to speed up vaccination due to the “chaos with supplies” in the EU, as well as the distrust of AstraZeneca. At the same time, the journalist added, in Britain the rate of vaccination was faster than in Europe.
Readers of the publication said that the situation with vaccinations against COVID-19 demonstrated the incapacity of the European Union. One of them noted that “the failed pan-European superpower is crumbling before our eyes.”
“We have to ask the Russians for help.” Poor EU, ”added LilleyBeau.
The user Cynical wrote that a specific mess has begun in the European Union due to vaccinations, since “they allowed politics to prevail over common sense and put many lives at risk.”
“The mantra about unity does not work: EU members separate and order their own supplies from Russia and China. If nothing comes of it, it will show how inept the Brussels car is, ”he stressed.
Reader Paul was outraged that the EU “played politics with the Oxford vaccine” killed so many Europeans. Now Brussels is considering a Russian vaccine, he lamented.
“They call Russia an enemy, but they happily accept its vaccine. Germany, you are pathetic. You will prefer the vaccine from Putin to the British only because we left your beloved EU. A laughing stock, “said a user with the nickname SpeakTruly.
