The article titled “Russian exports of vaccines exceeded $ 1 billion” reported that the supply of drugs had become a record since the 1990s. “We Can Explain” emphasizes that RBC took the data of the Federal Customs Service on the export of “other vaccines for people” for 10 months of 2021, took the comment of the Ministry of Industry and Trade that almost all of these are anti-ancillary vaccinations. Based on this comment alone, the media announced that the export of Russian vaccines against coronavirus in value terms for 10 months of 2021 amounted to more than $ 1.2 billion.
