"Effective and safe vaccines should be available to everyone and Russia is ready to provide its coronavirus vaccines to the countries in need... Russia supports the summit’s draft decision aimed at making effective and safe vaccines available to everyone... Undoubtedly, vaccines should belong to the entire public," Putin said, according to the Kremlin.
"Our country, Russia, is ready to provide the countries in need with the vaccines developed by our researchers. This is the world’s first registered vaccine Sputnik V, based on human adenoviral vectors platform. The second Russian vaccine, EpiVacCorona from a Novosibirsk research centre, is also ready. The third Russian vaccine is coming," he added.
