Russia, whose representatives were not allowed to participate in the 2022 World Cup due to the invasion of Ukraine, decided to attribute the victory to the Argentine national team. This happened against the background of the campaign announced by the Kremlin to launch an “incubator of good news” about Russian President Vladimir Putin.
As written The Moscow Times, Russian state corporations continue to prepare a positive order of news and events in which Vladimir Putin could take part. Such an event in Russia is considered the final of the World Cup in football.
The Russian propaganda publication “RIA Novosti” reported that Putin congratulated the president of Argentina on his victory. Then the state corporation RFPI announced that Argentina had won thanks to the Sputnik V vaccine.
“The largest number of doses of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine were exported to Argentina. Even the president of Argentina was vaccinated with Sputnik V. Today, the country’s national team defeated France in a penalty shoot-out and became the world champion. Coincidence? We don’t think so,” the RFPI said.
