Germany will hold bilateral talks with Russia on the possibility of supplying Russian vaccine against Sputnik V coronavirus


Germany will hold bilateral talks with Russia on the possibility of supplying Russian vaccine against coronavirus Sputnik V, said the head of the German Ministry of Health Jens Spahn. Earlier a source told Reuters about the relevant plans of the Federal Republic of Germany. According to him, the European Commission has decided not to start discussion with the Russian Federation on the supply of Sputnik V. Since March, the vaccine has been tested by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

Jens Spahn said that Germany is waiting for information from the Russian side on when and how much vaccine it can receive after the Russian drug is approved by the EMA. "I explained at the EU health ministers' council that we would then talk to Russia on a bilateral basis, namely to talk about when in general and how much can come in," he told WDR5 radio (quoted by TASS). "Sputnik V has been approved for use in 59 countries. Hungary and Slovakia, in particular, have already approved the use of Russian drug. The Czech Republic stated that the position of the EU forced to start negotiations with the Russian side, as European countries are not provided with the necessary volumes of the vaccine.
