President Vladimir Putin stated that the Russian-made Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine was the best in the world. He announced it during a meeting with the government, which was broadcasted by Russia 24 TV channel, RBC reports.
"The vaccine is Russian, it is absolutely obvious, we used to think so, and now it is also proved by practice, I think it is the best in the world," he said.
In his opinion, all other vaccines are not able to demonstrate the same levels of protection and safety.
Putin pointed out that, according to domestic experts, the Russian vaccine should be effective against multiple coronavirus strains.
As we reported earlier, the price of the Chinese CoronaVac vaccine dose for Ukrainians will make 504 hryvnias (18 dollars).
To prevent resell, we introduce the single price – 504 hryvnia ($18),” said Valery Pechayev, Head of Lekhhim supervisory board.
According to him, the price of the vaccine depends on the dollar rate. If the rate does not change, the price might reduce.
