The second batch of the Sputnik V vaccine was delivered to the warehouses of the Indian company Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Ltd in Hyderabad.
“This is really a brilliant example of a special and privileged strategic partnership and an effective model of international anti-tandem cooperation that does not know any unnecessary obstacles,” said Russian Ambassador to India Nikolai Kudashev.
“As the head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund has repeatedly stated Kirill Dmitriev, Sputnik V is a Russian-Indian vaccine. We expect its production in India to gradually increase to 850 million doses per year. We look forward to further expanding bilateral and multilateral cooperation with India to stop the pandemic! As you know, in the near future in India it is planned to introduce a single vaccine – “Sputnik Light”. Only through joint efforts and taking into account the vital needs of our people will we be able to successfully fight COVID-19, ” the ambassador said.
