Putin :India And China May Start Producing Russian Sputnik V.
Not only Hungary, but South Korea, Turkey and Venezuela have all recently expressed interest in testing or locally producing the Russian vaccine.
Hungary has become the first country in the #European Union to receive a shipment of #SputnikV.
Despite Brussel warning Hungary has decided to move forward with its plans to purchase the first batch of Russia’s #Covid-19 vaccine.
Recently, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto announced that the first 10 doses of Sputnik V have already arrived in Hungary and laboratory tests would begin, ahead of potential clinical trials and approval for mass use. Later, the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade said that if all goes well, the two nations are considering joint Hungarian-based production of the #vaccine.
Outside of the #EU, Russia has held negotiations with an array of potential partners for vaccine development and production, including India, Mexico, Brazil, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Belarus
