Putin: Providing aid and the Corona vaccine to other countries is a "Russian responsibility towards the world"

Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia's assistance to other countries by providing a vaccine against the Corona virus is its responsibility to the world as a leading scientific power.

Putin explained - in a statement reported by the Russian "TASS" news agency - that Russian scientists have created a safe and effective vaccine known as "Sputnik" against the Corona virus, which allowed Russia to ensure the availability of the drug to its population and provide vital assistance to other countries.

The Russian president noted that the strength of the Russian scientific school was clearly demonstrated last year, when "people all over the world were waiting for the coronavirus pandemic to be overcome by scientists," stressing: "Our scientists have achieved success, and we can call it a victory."

And the Russian health authorities recorded 13,510 new infections with the Corona virus during the past 24 hours, the highest daily toll recorded by the country since last February 15, bringing the total number of confirmed infections in the country since the beginning of the pandemic to 5,193,964 infections.
