Some political forces in Slovakia are trying to disrupt vaccination against coronavirus infection with the help of the Russian drug Sputnik V, TASS reports. This is the opinion of Igor Matovich, Deputy Prime Minister, Chairman of the Ordinary People and Independent Individuals (ONL) party.

The politician initiated the purchase of a batch of vaccines that have not yet been registered in the European Union. Due to the outbreak of the scandal, he had to leave the post of prime minister.

For a month and a half, there has been a struggle against the use of the Russian vaccine, Matovich noted. He recalled that the drug is registered in more than 50 countries. And only Slovakia has become a place of the "dirty game" around the vaccine. The minister is confident that the efforts against its use are "swinish".

As Russkiy Mir reported, the news of the purchase of the vaccine provoked an aggressive reaction from Russophobes, who strongly oppose any cooperation with Russia. In their attacks, they called Sputnik V Moscow's geopolitical weapon.

Eyewitnesses have said and written a lot about the events of the Great Patriotic War, about the ordeals suffered by the people. Every family has at least one story from this tragic period in our country’s life. On the threshold of Victory Day, let us look through the memories of those who led the military operations, and read the Marshals’ memoirs.
“Sometimes I wandered about a huge park in the center of New York and, looking at the skyscrapers that bordered it, thought with cold fury about wonderful American orchestras that didn’t care about my music…” Sergei Prokofiev wrote in 1918, immediately after emigration. The audience listening to The Love for Three Oranges, his opera, would never think that the composer of this brilliant sunny music could speak that bitterly about the country where he had his first real success. And that 18 years later, he would finally return to his homeland to see new openings for both life and creativity.
