Honestly surprised the US doesn't already have an exclusive deal with Russia for 300 million vials of novichok vaccine.

Who needs a vaccine when there's a cure?

The FDA protected us from Thalidomide. Let's pray they continue in that tradition and do not allow Trump or any other politician to sway them from their mission.

experts interviewed by ABC News expressed concern about the country's swift action to disseminate the unproven vaccine to low and middle-income countries, noting that if the vaccine were to prove a failure, it could fuel vaccine skepticism globally.

fark. That is the plan, isn't it?

I thought there was a vaccine in October so it would make sense to vote twice.

The odds are slim that they'd have something so fast.

If the vaccine works, the odds COVID-19 was a biological weapon they developed get pretty close to 1:1.

A growing chorus of experts is calling on Russian scientists to explain potential discrepancies in the data supporting the country's COVID-19 vaccine, dubbed Sputnik V.

"Sputnik V...patient seems to be fighting the virus and growing stronger every day..."

Look. If Putin says it's safe and effective; then it's safe and effective. He's really knowledgeable about what kills people.

Anti-vaxxers, global warming deniers and other conspiracy theorists should take note. This is a good example of how difficult it is to falsify data.  It's much easier for grifters to just keep droning on about fake news, elitist deep staters and intellectualism.   Maybe rather then "believing" the science is wrong or falsified you should question the person telling you that.

It's not like the anti-civilization shiathole Putin has turned Russia into is THE worldwide origin for antivax lies or anything.

There was a time I would have trusted the FDA as a Canadian.  I'll trust our own medical advisory boards from now on thank you very much.  You might want to check in with us too.

What is the point of spreading antivaxxing? What does anyone gain? Does Putin have stock in an iron lung manufacturer or something? Are they hoping to slow down population explosions by measles-caused infertility? Do Russians really, really want to get the flu every year?  Or are they planning biowarfare strategies using things that right now have effective vaccines?

Yeah, but the Russian scientists have much more experience in fermented potatoes, so they have a natural advantage.  Potato based serums are all the rage now, I hear.

They skipped Stage 3 trials. They weren't the first to get as far as they did, they were just the first to be irresponsible enough to skip widespread testing for safety and efficacy.

published their findings of an early-stage study in the prestigious medical journal, The Lancet

They're not that prestigious at the moment. This follows retracting a Hydroxychloroquine study from a con artist, a science fiction author, and a porn star, after everyone pointed out that the data was made up. Now they published a paper effectively from the Russian government, and didn't consider if the data was made up? Their reputation is more prestigious than Ernie's Infectious Diseases and Gun Swap Monthly, but nobody's taking breakthrough COVID news from the Lancet at face value.

Lol, no they aren't.

But they started on a vaccine at the same time as everyone, and they finished their legit phase 2 trials at about the same time I think three others did (astra zeneca, phizer and moderna IIRC).

They don't have anything faster and aren't further along is what I'm saying. They just skipped a critical step to claim the weeners.

His country is a shiatshow, and lagging the pack.  Justifiable sanctions are keeping them there.

If you can't run faster, hobbling anyone in front of you looks more attractive...Putin wants to restore their former glory.  It ain't happening, but a lot of people will suffer along the way, and not all of them will be Russian.
