The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) has agreed with Hungary on the supply of Sputnik V, a domestic vaccine against coronavirus. This was announced by the head of the Ministry of Health Mikhail Murashko, reports TASS…
“It is a great pleasure for me to announce that today we have concluded an agreement,” the minister said, adding that the supply of the drug will be made in three stages.
At the end of December 2020, there were reports that Hungary refused to buy the Russian vaccine, allegedly due to insufficient production capacity in Russia. RDIF denied these data, noting that the first delivery to the country was made on December 28. The foundation was in talks with Hungarian regulators to obtain permits to supply the entire batch of the drug in January-March 2021.
On January 21, it became known about the beginning of negotiations between Serbia and Russia on the joint production of Sputnik V.
