Austria expects arrival of Sputnik V vaccine from Russia

Vienna, Mar 31 (Prensa Latina) Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz on Wednesday highlighted the success of negotiations with Russia to acquire Sputnik V vaccines, and announced the possible arrival of the first doses next week.

After a meeting with Russian Ambassador Dmitri Liubinski, Kurz broke the news, which follows a previous conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

A few days ago, the head of the Austrian government asked the European Medicines Agency to authorize all safe vaccines against the coronavirus, including Sputnik V, as soon as possible.
