Putin: Russia ready to help Germany with jab supply

Russian President Vladimir Putin stressed on Thursday Moscow's support to Germany in its fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly concerning "the supplies and joint production of vaccines."

The Kremlin added Putin and Saxony's Minister-President Michael Kretschmer discussed the "prospects for the development of Russian-German relations, in which interregional ties play an important role," as well as Moscow's conflict with Ukraine and the case of opposition politician Alexey Navalny.

Earlier in the day, Kretschmer announced the German government has reached an initial agreement with Russia to acquire 30 million doses of the Gamaleya Research Institute's vaccine against COVID-19, Sputnik V.
