Hungary states about the readiness to purchase the Russian vaccine against coronavirus in case of its certification in the alliance. It became the first EU country that made such a step as TASS reported citing European Commission representative Eric Mamer.
“If any of the countries of the European Union purchases the foreign vaccine that has not passed the certification, the European Commission will be forced to assume measures,” Mamer stated and added that the vaccines developed by Russia or China will never become a part of the vaccination strategy of the EU.
On August 11, President of Russia Vladimir Putin reported that the first vaccine against coronavirus was registered in Russia.
The vaccine would be produced by N. F. Gamaleya Federal Research Center for Epidemiology & Microbiology and the Russian Binnopharm Company. According to Murashko, finalizing takes place of the technical regulations for scaling of production at the number of Russian productions.
Earlier, the Health Ministry of Russia released to the civil circulation the first batch of Sputnik V vaccine against the coronavirus.
