    The Surprising Success of Sputnik V

    What is really surprising is the “shock” and “total ignorance” of western commentators who have been so surprised that Russia can do this.

    Let me see: Institute with long term experience in vaccine development including Ebola and MERS and probably institutional memory going back to the TB vaccines in the 1950s or 1960s

    Good knowledge of Russian and international production capacities.

    Great partnership with the Russian Sovereign Wealth organization which has the organization abilities and international contacts to deliver results around the world.

    The only surprise is the Western surprise.
