OREANDA-NEWS. Readers of the British edition of the Daily Express negatively reacted to the newspaper's admission of an error in publishing material that Russia allegedly stole the AstraZeneca formula to create its own Sputnik V vaccine. They expressed their opinion in the comments.

"The Russians did not copy anything. But the Russians do everything and always," said Xao Fan-Tzilin.

"The British press has long turned into a commonplace generator of rumors and false news. Such publications discredit not only an individual publication, but the entire corrupt Western press," said Dr Tarr.

"Our media still publish numerous anti-Russian / anti-Putin articles with fake information that are never questioned and that need to be changed," Username Mk 2 wrote.

"A survey of over 70 countries using Sputnik V showed that they were very happy. Here's the real news," said another user.

The Sun newspaper was the first to report that Russia allegedly stole the AstraZeneca vaccine formula and used the stolen formula to develop its Sputnik V. After the article was published, the fake news was spread by other media outlets, including the British newspaper Daily Express. The director of the Gamaleya center (developer of Sputnik V) Alexander Gintsburg back in April, telling RIA Novosti the funniest, in his opinion, myth about Sputnik V, retold the story that Russian hackers stole the vaccine development plan from AstraZeneca, and noted that such information "made me very happy and amused."
