57% of Indian respondents prefer Sputnik V: YouGovNew Delhi, March 24, 2021 – The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF, Russia’s sovereign wealth fund), announces the results of a YouGov survey with 9.417 respondents from 9 countries on their vaccine preferences and country of preference in terms of vaccine production.

According to the survey, 54% of respondents who selected a country they trust to produce a vaccine, considered Russia the most trusted vaccine producer alongside the US and leaving the UK behind, when asked to choose the 3 countries they trusted the most to produce a vaccine. Sputnik V, the world’s first registered vaccine against coronavirus, is the most recognizable one – over 7 in 10 (74%) of those surveyed have heard of the Russian vaccine. Sputnik V is also among Top-2 most preferred vaccines, just after the one produced by Pfizer/BioNTech.

The survey was conducted between February 18 and March 3 by YouGov, the leading UK-based company in market research and data analytics in Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, North Africa and Europe. Residents of India, Brazil, Mexico, the Philippines, Vietnam, Argentina, Algeria, the UAE and Serbia participated in the poll. More than 2 billion people, or over 25% of the world’s population, live in these countries.

“We have received a very good response from the Indian respondents in this YouGov survey. Sputnik V is the most recognizable vaccine in India (57% of respondents), ahead of Pfizer and AstraZeneca, not only because of its safety and high efficacy, but also because its differentiating features, such as ease of transportation and storage and affordable price, fully meet expectation of Indian respondents”, said Kirill Dmitriev, CEO of the Russian Direct Investment Fund

“In fact, Sputnik V ranked first among foreign vaccines as the most trustworthy. In addition, the fact that India is emerging as the most important manufacturing hub for Sputnik V further boosted the confidence of the people of the country in the Russian vaccine”, he said.
