Russian spies stole the formula of AstraZeneca Vaccine designed to fight Coronavirus. After this, Russia made its Sputnik V Vaccine through this formula. This vaccine was made in collaboration with Oxford University. British newspaper The Sun has claimed this. The newspaper quoted the Security Service as saying they had evidence that Russian spies stole vital drug company data, including blueprints for the COVID-19 vaccine.
According to the newspaper report, Sputnik V was prepared through this data. It also revealed that the blueprints and vital information were personally stolen by a foreign agent. In fact, Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine uses a technology similar to the one designed by Oxford. In India, this vaccine is being prepared by the Serum Institute of India (SII) and it is being used by the central government for vaccination. United Kingdom Security Minister Damien Hinds did not verify this report. But he added that cyber attacks are becoming more efficient.
What did Security Minister Damien Hinds say?
At the same time, Damien Hinds was asked about this report published in The Sun on LBC radio whether British security chiefs believe that Russia stole the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine formula. To this he said, ‘I cannot comment specifically on this matter. But it is fair to assume that there are many countries who want to keep sensitive information with them. This includes commercial secrets, scientific secrets and intellectual property. They are constantly engaged in stealing it. Things that happen in cyberspace happen quite differently. So we need to be cautious.
last year spies said attack
Hinds said, ‘I have to say with sadness that we live in such a world. Where many countries are involved in industrial espionage and economic espionage. Even cyber attacks are done. The Sun also reported in its report that last year spies pointed a finger at Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying they believe up to 95 percent that Russian hackers were created by UK, US and Canadian bodies. Targeted the vaccine formula going on. Last week the World Health Organization (WHO) said it was about to restart the process of approving Sputnik V after problems with the dossier.
