Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel stated that she had offered Russia’s President Vladimir Putin the support of the German regulator in the approval of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine at the European Medicines Agency (EMA) as RIA News reported.
“Russia has appealed to the EMA. I offered that our Paul Ehrlich Institute would facilitate Russia in this procedure at the EMA,” she stated.
She added that the issue is, particularly, about the support in the procession of the documentation. The chancellor was also asked about the content of her talk with Putin at the beginning of January, particularly, about the interest in the Russian Sputnik V vaccine.
