It is very profitable to produce Sputnik V, the head of the Italian-Russian Chamber of Commerce Vincenzo Trani is sure. In his opinion, the demand for the vaccine in the world is far ahead of supply, RIA Novosti reports. He noted that the production of the vaccine does not require a permission from the European Union. It can be produced and then sold worldwide, with the exception of European countries.

Vincenzo Trani believes that every country is free in its choice of vaccines. However, according to Trani, if the EU had begun using the Russian drug right away, many lives could have been saved, and the restrictions would have been lifted earlier. 

Europe's refusal to use Sputnik V did not prevent it from becoming the 2nd most widely distributed vaccine in the world. Trani is sure that Russia did not expect to distribute the Russian drug on the European market - the competition is too high there, and it is very difficult to get permission, because they are promoting their products in Europe.
