As cases mount, India studying Russian proposal for Covid-19 vaccine
NEW DELHI: As Covid-19 cases continue to mount in India, the Russian ambassador here, Nikolay Kudashev, has said Moscow is talking to the Indian go nment "on different levels" about cooperation that could include "supplies, co-development and co-production" of Sputnik V, the first anti-Covid vaccine in the world. The vaccine, according to a Lancet study, has been found in initial trials as causing no serious side effects.
Official sources here confirmed to TOI that Russia had shared formally modalities of cooperation with India on the vaccine and that the Indian go nment was examining the details.
"As far as we know, after some necessary technical steps, the vaccine would be ready to be widely used, including abroad," said Kudashev.
The issue is also likely to come up during foreign minister S Jaishankar's visit to Moscow this week. Kudashev also said though that Russia hoped to work with India for a "just and multipolar" world order at a time some countries were playing "geopolitical games" despite the pandemic and creating "close-door exclusive blocs".
Despite its grand military exercise with India in the Andamans, and also its recent discussions with India and Japan for a trilateral mechanism, Moscow continues to abhor even the term Indo-Pacific, calling it a US-led initiative meant to contain Beijing. India though has sought to address some of these doubts by emphasising in bilateral meetings that the Indo-Pacific is a free, open, transparent and inclusive concept with ASEAN at its centre and that it doesn't exclude any country.

Government should fast track and allow trials in India... Don't wast time on thaali taali and diya.. By the way what is the progress of desi vaccine... Never heard of it again...
Russian vaccine is safe as also stated in Lancet which is a world wide reputed medical journal. Bring this vaccine to India immediately. With almost 100000 infections per day India is passing through most difficult phase.
But feku lal had said mahabharat battle lasted for 18 days and we will defeat corona in 21 days. I guess he meant to say 1 year 21 days, slip of tongue I guess. Also finance minister said 'It is act of god'
Now suddenly all bhakts started praising Putin. They forgot trump.
Just take the vaccine!!! India needs it. In other countries, the cases started reducing after 3-4 months. In India, I doubt it will happen. It's been 6 Months and everyone is fed up now!!! We want our life back!!!
Desh Ke Aage Kuch Nahi
Hats off to Russians.
The Russian vaccine has just had phase 1 trial with 72 people. Phase 3 generally involves 30K trials. Russia is looking to countries that will supply guinee pigs.
No. 2 in the world status, Wah Modi wah. When petrol price went up in 2013, you said go nment does know how to run the country. Now Corona no 2 position, GDP -23%, unemployment over 10%, and sab changa. Stop dreaming Bhakths. Has time for video shoot with pecocks but no time for a press conference.
India must seize the opportunity to work with Russia to produce vaccine. Russia is our all weather friend.
India is getting ruined due to its heavy population. No political party ever mentioned in their political manifesto on population control since our independence time. Unless this core issue is addressed there is no use in taking any measures to improve the country
Let India be not the dumping ground for the Russian vaccine. People should know the efficacy of the virus before giving it to mass
Govt should take some call right now, we r heading towards a dark havoc, already we have crossed danger line.
Stop following WHO
Why? Who will approve vaccine? Modi?
Fossil By Then
Religion, Casteism and Regionalism are the PILLARS of Indian society today. These three are highest priority over everything else.
our brainless leader is once again turning to our time tested friend Russia to save our lives. Brainless chaiwalla has insulted made a joke of our great nation.
I think Pakistanis also involved in spreading so much COVID cases in India.. Pakistani would have asked patients to come to India spread and take free treatment.
need quick decisions to control this
Saroj Shekhar Rath
vaccine is the only answer to present covid pandemic
5000 for one shot
Now go nment will say : Community transmission not yet started in India, we are in far better position than other countries.
Do it immediately.......Don't waste any time.
