The Italian peninsula micro state, San Marino applied to have the Covid vaccination certificate it issues in the EU. However, the San Marino government bought Sputnik V, the Russian vaccine which is not registered in the EU.
The EU purposefully refuses to register Sputnik V because of lobbying from Western big pharmaceutical companies that want the European market for themselves. San Marino is not in the EU and can do whatever it wishes, and I bet they can even make the EU acknowledge its certificate because many important people have money stashed there.
Meanwhile those that are enslaved by EU will pay more money for Pfizer and Moderna, and will be deprived of the Sputnik V option. Any exclusion of Russian and Chinese business from the European market will only lead to the Western companies making the best of their exclusivity.
On the example of San Marino we see the benefits of being out the EU. Sovereign thinking and acting in your national interests. As for Russia, Russians need to learn that they cannot expect fairness from the West…
