(ANSA) - MOSCOW, SEPTEMBER 24 - Mexico, Brazil and India have ordered about 200 million doses of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine against the new coronavirus.
RDIF CEO Kiril Dmitriev said this, specifying that other orders from seven countries in Latin America, the Middle East and Asia are expected.
"In the near future we will name the other seven countries. And they are big countries," Dmitriev said in a virtual press conference hosted by Interfax.
"For political reasons, EU countries and the US are trying to support their vaccines and prevent the purchase of the Russian vaccine," he added.
