Thuringia speaks in favor of soonest Sputnik V use in Germany

Minister president of Germany’s Thuringia region, Bodo Ramelow, called for using Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine against the novel coronavirus on the country’s territory as soon as possible.

"In my opinion, the Sputnik V vaccine provides a great opportunity for a quicker return to normal life," he said in an interview with Funke Mediengruppe, published on Thursday. "I call upon the German government to let EU understand that a necessary amount of the vaccine should be requested from Sputnik V manufacturers right now."

According to the politician, authorizing the use of Sputnik V will help German citizens to overcome prejudices related to Russian-made medicines. As an example, he cited Germany’s decision to reject Soviet-made vaccine against polio in 1960s, at the cost of children’s lives and health.

"The use of Sputnik V in Germany can lead to the understanding that Eastern European science is not worse than that of capitalist states," TASS cited him as saying.
