The first Russian vaccine aspires to obtain international approval.
A senior Russian official said that Moscow is seeking to produce 30 million doses of the anti-virus vaccine that causes the disease "Covid 19" this year, indicating that it may be the first vaccine to obtain "international approval."
The head of the Russian direct investment fund Kirill Dmitriyev told "Reuters" that there is a "general feeling" that Russia needs to vaccinate between 40 and 50 million people.
The official expressed the belief that his country will be in good shape, if 30 million local doses are produced this year, expecting the vaccination process to end next year.
According to this official, Russia this week completed the second stage of clinical trials of its upcoming vaccine, and the third stage is scheduled to begin next August.
He said that there are high hopes attached to the promising vaccine, stressing that it will prove successful against "Covid 19".
Russia has recorded more than 750,000 cases of corona virus so far.
