No ongoing EU-Russia talks on buying Sputnik V - Commission

The European Union hasn't engaged in negotiations with Russia on a potential purchase of Sputnik V vaccine against the coronavirus that was developed by the Gamaleya Institute, a spokesperson for the European Commission noted on Thursday.

"Currently no talks are ongoing to integrate the Sputnik vaccine in the portfolio," the spokesperson claimed at a press briefing.

Previously, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) said it started reviewing Sputnik V "based on results from laboratory studies and clinical studies in adults." Nevertheless, another spokesman for the Commission underscored that "it does not mean there is any obligation for the Commission to include it in our portfolio."
