Germany agrees to buy 30 million Sputnik V doses

Saxony's Minister-President Michael Kretschmer announced on Thursday the German government has reached an initial agreement with Russia on the acquisition of 30 million doses of the Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine.

Kretschmer revealed the deal following his meeting with Russia's Health Minister Mikhail Murashko, noting that Germany is negotiating the delivery of 10 million vaccine doses per month in June, July and August.

However, the agreement will finalize on the condition that the European Medicines Agency provides emergency approval for the use of the Russian jab in the European Union.
