The production of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine has been organized at a dozen production sites abroad, TASS reports. The drug is produced at chemical plants in Brazil, China, India, South Korea.

According to Kirill Dmitriev, who heads the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), the drug produced abroad is intended for supply to other countries.

He added that the vaccine will be produced by leading pharmaceutical companies. Many of them were offered to produce other vaccines, but they believed in Sputnik V at a very early stage and are already starting to produce our vaccine, said Kirill Dmitriev.

The production sites of foreign partners, where the Russian Sputnik V vaccine against coronavirus infection is produced, can increase capacity and produce annually up to 350 million doses of the drug. According to the Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov, the vaccine has already begun to be produced in Kazakhstan.
