The Russian President, Vladimir Putintold the leaders of the G20 that Russia is ready to provide its vaccine against covid-19, Sputnik V, to the countries that need it.
The president also reported that the second Russian vaccine, ‘EpiVac Corona’, which was created by a scientific center in Novosibirsk, is also ready; while its third vaccine is in development.

Russia said last week that its first coronavirus vaccine, Sputnik V, was 92 percent effective, based on the results of an interim trial conducted by the Gamaleya Center and Russia’s Fund for Direct Investments (FIDR).
Developers of Russia’s second covid-19 vaccine said on Friday that mass production would begin in 2021.
Currently Russia is beyond the threshold of 2 million infections, only behind the United States, India, Brazil and France.
