Russian President Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation today with the head of Kazakhstan Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev.
As reported on the Kremlin’s website, the leaders of the two countries discussed the fight against the pandemic, as well as the prospects for the production of the Russian vaccine against the Sputnik V coronavirus in Kazakhstan.
Also, Putin and Tokayev considered issues of deepening interaction within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union in the context of the current chairmanship of Kazakhstan.
Recall that Kazakhstan approved the use of a Russian drug for coronavirus, thereby confirming the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine. On February 15, the country’s authorities registered Sputnik V.
Earlier it became known that the Karaganda pharmaceutical complex (KFK) received from the Ministry of Health of Kazakhstan a registration certificate for the Sputnik V vaccine.
