A batch of fake Sputnik V coronavirus vaccines was captured in Mexico, the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) says on Thursday, APA reports citing TASS.

"RDIF extends appreciation to the government of Mexico, customs authorities and armed forces of the country for capturing the fake vaccine batch," the Fund says.

Earlier today, Mexican authorities seized a batch of fake vaccines, whose design and package imitated the Russian coronavirus vaccine Sputnik V.

An attempt to supply a fake vaccine batch is an example of possible provocations against the Russian pharmaceutical, as the Russian mass media reported last week, the Fund says.
