All barriers to register Sputnik V vaccine at the World Health Organization (WHO) have been eliminated and only a few procedures remain to be completed, reported Russian Health Minister Mikhail Murashko.

The Sputnik V vaccine, widely used in Russia and approved for use in more than 70 countries, is under review by the WHO and the European Medicines Agency (EMA). Your authorization could open up new markets for your application, especially in Europe.

Murashko met with WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in Geneva.

“The position of Russia was heard about promotion and registration from the Sputnik V vaccine, we have eliminated all questions for today, “Murashko said.

He noted that the company that handles the registration of Sputnik V with the WHO only “has to sign some documents, present some additional documents.”

In July, the WHO found problems with the filling of doses of the Sputnik V vaccine in a plant, after reviewing the production process in Russia. The manufacturer mentioned that, since then, all WHO concerns have been addressed and worked on.
