The move by the Russian Health Ministry paves the way for mass inoculation even as the final stages of clinical trials to test safety and efficacy continue. The rapid speed at which Russia is moving to roll out its vaccine highlights its determination to win the global race for an effective vaccine but this has also stirred concerns that it might be put national prestige before science and safety. Kirill Dmitriev, the head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund that finances the vaccine project, stated that the Phase 3 trials of the vaccine would start on Wednesday.

Russia has named its first approved COVID-19 vaccine ‘Sputnik V’ for foreign markets, a reference to the world’s first satellite and what Moscow sees as its success at becoming the first country to approve a vaccine, a top official said on Tuesday. Russia has already received requests from more than 20 countries for 1 billion doses of its newly-registered COVID-19 vaccine.
