Reuters reports that the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), which has been backing its development and marketing it globally, said.

Meanwhile, different reactions have trailed the announcement on social media:

"It took them 2 days to come up with the 2% figure higher than Pfizer Rolling on the floor laughing. We can't go just 1% Sergey, that's to obvious, but anything more than 5% seems unlikely."

Tom Talisman:

"Ask 1000 people, including Russians, if they‘d rather have the German-American or the Russian vaccine injected into their bodies. I‘m guessing the result would be rather one-sided."

Curious Chak:

"Oh, come on. Just because Pfizer says theirs was 90%, they say its 92%?
"Are these numbers peer-reviewed? Have no doubt about the fact that Russians are capable of cutting edge science. But let's have it out in the open."

Eddy edster:

"Why do they describe it as a battle to beat Western drugmakers - cold war attitude - everyone is trying to develop a vaccine - its not a battle as more than one vaccine can succeed. Everyone is racing but again they make that sound bad. Speed is of the essence."

Amit Patel:

"Oh Vlad. Pfizer announce 90%, let’s got for 92%, not 91% to not make it look made up. That or they probably just stole the same vaccine."

Big Fat Lion:

"Great - so they'll happily volunteer a large batch to be independently tested and benchmarked vs @pfizer's or any others, right?"
