San Marino opts for Sputnik V, demands approval for Russian jab
"In San Marino, the health and safety of its citizens come first, especially given the deteriorating epidemiological situation. The decision to use Sputnik V allowed us to quickly set up supplies and launch mass vaccination," according to Beccari, who arrived in Moscow to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and a number of other top cabinet officials.
Beccari emphasized that the already established close ties with Russia led to such a quick decision. He said that no external pressure was exerted on the republic, and now the authorities were sorting out the problem regarding the restriction of movement associated with the use of jab not recognized by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). ■
