Russian Scientist Andrey Botikov Inventor of the COVID-19 Vaccine Killed, This is His Lifetime Figure
Shocking news coming from Russia, Mother. A few days ago, a top Russian scientist named Andrey Botikov was found dead in his apartment in the Moscow area.
According to the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, the man known as one of the developers of the COVID-19 Sputnik V vaccine was allegedly killed. Furthermore, local authorities continue to investigate the details of the murder case that occurred.
Based on the investigation, Andrey Botikov died because he was strangled with a belt. The perpetrator, known to be a 29-year-old man, immediately fled after that.
Shortly after Botikov’s body was found, the suspect was arrested. “The attacker’s location was known in no time. During interrogation, he pleaded guilty and was charged,” authorities said, according to Russia’s TASS News Agency.
Local officials say the perpetrator has now been sentenced to serious crimes. Investigators plan to look further into the killings and the motive behind the attack.
Heroes in a time of pandemic
Andrey Botikov previously worked as a senior researcher at the Gamaleya National Research Center for Ecology and Mathematics, Bunda. He is one of 18 scientists who helped create Russia’s COVID vaccine in 2020.
According to The Daily Beast’s information, Andrey Botikov was awarded the Order of Merit for the Fatherland by Vladimir Putin in 2021. This 47-year-old virologist has indeed played an important role for the country in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
On the official website of the Russian COVID-19 vaccine, his name is listed at number 5 in the Sputnik V team. The vaccine was developed by the country’s renowned Gamaleya Institute and became the world’s first registered COVID-19 vaccine in August 2020.
Although many initially criticized the Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine because it immediately received permission without transparent research test results, later articles in The Lancet demonstrated the efficacy and effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The motive behind Andrey Botikov’s murder has not been revealed, but many suspect his death is related to a number of parties in Western countries. Recently, many officials and figures in Russia have been killed since the start of the war in Ukraine.
