Sputnik V vaccine will begin to be supplied abroad early next year, RIA Novosti reports. Buyers will receive the drug in accordance with the agreements reached with the manufacturers.

Customers who order later will be able to receive the first vaccine batches in early spring.

According to Kirill Dmitriev, head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund, the supply of the drug to international markets will begin thanks to manufacturers from India, Brazil, South Korea, and China. Also, the vaccine will be produced in four more countries.

The creators of the drug have promised that the price of the vaccine on the international market would be less than 20 dollars. They explained that this is half the cost of other vaccines with similar efficacy, but created on the basis of mRNA. The vaccine price is valid from February next year.

At the same time, the drug will be free for Russians.
