Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he will be vaccinated against coronavirus on Tuesday (March 23).
Reuters reported that Putin did not specify which of the three domestic Russian vaccines he will receive.
According to reports, Putin said in a video conference on Monday about the coronavirus vaccine made in Russia that Russia has signed purchase agreements with many countries to provide 700 million people around the world with the satellite 5 vaccine. But he said that for every Russian, the decision to vaccinate is purely voluntary.
He added that the most important thing now is that Russia must expand its production of vaccines for domestic use. So far, 4.3 million Russians have been vaccinated against coronavirus.
