On Tuesday, the head of the European Council, Charles Michel, condemned the widespread coverage of the export of coronavirus vaccines from China and Russia. He said that Europe would not use the vaccines for propaganda purposes.
“We must not allow China and Russia, regimes with less desirable values than ours, to mislead us by organizing minimal but highly publicized operations to supply vaccines to other countries,” said Michel, who chairs EU leaders ‘ summits.
He noted that, according to available data, in China and Russia, the number of administered doses of the vaccine per 100 inhabitants is half that in the European Union.
“Europe will not use vaccines for propaganda purposes. We promote our values,” Michel said.
