Post-registration clinical trials of the Sputnik V vaccine are going to be completed by early spring, TASS reports.

To date, 3,000 volunteers have already been vaccinated. Head of the Laboratory of Molecular Biotechnology at the Gamaleya Center, Doctor of Biological Sciences Maxim Shmarov, recalled that in total 40,000 people take part in the research, 23 clinical bases are involved.

As the specialist noted, the study would help assess not only the adverse events and immunogenicity of the drug, but also its epidemiological efficacy.

As Russkiy Mir reported, Belarus received the first batch of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine. The country became the first in the world to start clinical trials of the drug after it was registered in the Russian Federation.

The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) explained that the fund allocated funds for research in Belarus. One hundred people will take part in them. The same tests will take place in Brazil, India, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates.

Soviet cars are greeted with welcoming car klaxons honking on the streets of New York, Berlin or Tokyo. It's a long time since German students bought Zhiguli cars, and French farmers acquired Lada Niva. As of today, collectors are chasing Volga, Pobeda (Victory) and Moskvich (Muscovite), which are exhibited in museums and in public squares. For many foreigners, Soviet cars are curiosity and novelty, but for Russian compatriots they symbolize nostalgia and connection with their homeland.
Every year in April we commemorate the glorious day of April 12, 1961. It was the day when Yuri Gagarin, the first man of the new space era, was brought to near-earth orbit by the Vostok-1 spacecraft. The flight lasted just a little over an hour and a half, but it turned Gagarin into a figure that has been admired throughout the world ever since. The feat accomplished by Gagarin 60 years ago inspires us to recall the incredible connection of his story with Lolita Torres - a singer and one of the top actresses from Argentina's golden era of cinema.
