The supply of the Russian anti-COVID-19 vaccine is being discussed with different countries. According to Kirill Dmitriev, CEO of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), the number of interested states reaches 50, TASS reports.

Today, the existing capacities in Russia are not enough to produce the required number of vaccine doses, the head of the fund noted. Therefore, the country is cooperating with foreign countries. The negotiations have already made significant headway with 20 out of 50 countries, Kirill Dmitriev said. 

Many countries will join the vaccine clinical trials. In addition to Russia, tests will take place in Brazil, India, Mexico and other states. Gamaleya research institute managed to attract about 40,000 volunteers.
