Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov announced the growing interest of European countries in the Russian vaccine against coronavirus “Sputnik V”.
“Just the other day there was a request from Prince Albert II of Monaco to supply vaccines for the entire population of the principality,” the minister said in an interview. RBC.
According to Lavrov, the flow of requests for the Russian vaccine “is growing exponentially.”
He specified that after the emergence of independent scientific assessments, Western countries “were forced to admit that the vaccine is good.” However, attempts to discredit Sputnik V, as Lavrov noted, continue.
