Austria wanted to buy a million doses of Sputnik V from Russia

Austria wanted to buy one million doses of Sputnik V vaccine from Russia. The country's Chancellor Sebastian Kurz told about this, he is quoted by the Kurier edition.

The purchase of the Russian drug may begin in April-June. RIA Novosti, citing sources in Vienna, writes that negotiations with the Russian side are already underway, but there is no final agreement yet.

“There should be no geopolitical blinders on the issue of vaccines. The only thing that should play a role is how effective and safe the vaccine is, not where it is from. Therefore, since February, we have been in contact with the Russian side [regarding the supply of the vaccine], for which I am very grateful, “said Kurz.

According to the politician, if Austria receives additional doses of the vaccine, it can save many lives, provide people with jobs and generally return to “normal life.”

On March 17, the Austrian Chancellor also called on the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to admit the Russian Sputnik V vaccine to the EU market as soon as possible. The head of government added that he is ready to use the drug in the country, provided it is safe.
