Summary The article compares vaccine diplomacy from Russia and China, which have focused on reaching poorer countries, with the one of developed democracies, mainly COVAX, which has been slower in this area than Chinese and Russian alternatives. The author suggests that developed countries have neglected their responsibility with the international community by stocking vaccines and let authoritarian countries gain rapport with poorer nations.
