Racketeering in a middle of a pandemic. This is surely a time when they should be encouraging more vaccines for the masses so that people can have an informed. They want to suspend Sputnik because it has been a hit with folks. More people trust it.

Many cartels are now against the vaccine because of how popular it had become. Considering its efficiency, it should be the best solution
