    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The European Union is attempting to take urgent measures to undermine trust in Russia's COVID-19 vaccine, the press office of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) said on Tuesday.

    "Recently, the desire of a number of representatives of the European bureaucracy to unconditionally follow the path of Washington's harsh attitudes towards Russia and everything connected with our country is acquiring simply grotesque forms. … They are trying to suppress this 'unhealthy' activity by Russia and take urgent measures to discredit the vaccine created by Russian scientists", SVR said in a statement.

    Earlier this month, reports suggested the US and its allies were plotting a large-scale information campaign against Sputnik V and planned to circulate materials "exposing" the alleged incompetence of Russia's vaccination and immunology experts.
