Merkel offers help to approve Sputnik V in EU

German Chancellor Angela Merkel revealed on Thursday that she suggested that German medical regulatory body The Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI) could help with the Russia-made Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine registration in the European Union.

Merkel added she made the remark during a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Earlier in the day, the Russian vaccine got the first green light from a European Union member - Hungary. Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) CEO Kirill Dmitriev has previously said all data on the shot will be provided to the European Medicines Agency in February.
