The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination level in Russia is too low, and the high mortality rate during the pandemic is related to this fact, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.

“Yes, indeed, our vaccination rate is low. It is unacceptably low.

“Hence, we have such a high mortality rate,’’ Peskov told reporters.
