The president said he was convinced that “we must use all the capabilities of the world pharmaceutical industry to guarantee free access to vaccination.

The president of Russia, Vladimir Putin, defended in his remote participation in the 75th General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) the vaccine developed by his country to fight against the coronavirus, and offered it to the world community.

“We are absolutely open and determined to alliances,” Putin said in a video recorded and broadcast during the connection.

“We are ready to share our experience and continue to interact with everyone, including the provision for other countries of the Russian vaccine, that has been tested for reliability, safety and effectiveness“continued the president.

Putin offered the vaccine for free Sputnik V against the new coronavirus for the UN and for the protection of all its employees.

Putin insisted that citizens around the world should have free access to a vaccine against the disease and underscored the Kremlin’s willingness to work with other governments to share diagnostic and treatment methods.

“Russia is convinced that from now on it is necessary to use all the capabilities of the world pharmaceutical industry to guarantee free access to vaccination for citizens of all states in the short term“he added.

The Russian president assured that, soon, a “high-level online conference will be held with the participation of all countries interested in cooperation for the development of a coronavirus vaccine.”

When the creation of the vaccine was announced, Putin announced shortly after that his own daughter had been vaccinated and, later, other top Russian officials assured that they had also inoculated the medicine. As they said, more than 20 countries requested it, for a total of 1 billion doses.

In contrast to the United States, Putin argued that the World Health Organization (WHO) should play a central role in coordinating the response, saying that Russia is working to strengthen the capacity of the Geneva-based entity.
