The last thing missing from the turbulent political debate in the pandemic was for the Russians to arrive. Not as invaders or sources of interference, real or fictitious, but as guests at the table of genuinely Spanish tension. Determined to uphold the principle that the fault lies always with others and never their own, some governments have decided that the answer to all their prayers is the Russian Sputnik vaccine, not yet authorized in EU countries and only 3% to 5% of Russians have applied. (in Spain 15% of the population has received at least the first dose). Some have even decided that it is worth so many scientific precautions and that the time has come to accelerate the pressure mechanisms that states have, which is precisely the same thing that has caused the strange changes of opinion in relation to the AstraZeneca vaccine.
