Germany has said it would consider buying Russia's Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine as long as it was approved by European regulators.
According to the Russian Direct Investment Fund, which is marketing the jab globally, production is scheduled to begin in May.
"I think it's very important that countries come together to produce the vaccines," Kirill Dmitriev, head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund, told CGTN Europe. "We all know there is a shortage of vaccines in the world and the shortage will continue throughout the year and it's very important that countries come together and match production capacity with the vaccines needed to be produced. I think it's a great partnership with China and I think it's an example of how countries can cooperate for the benefit of people of the world."
