The President of the European Council Charles Miche acknowledged that there are disagreements in the EU over the possible supply of a Russian Sputnik V vaccine and announced Europe's aspiration to become the largest vaccine manufacturer in the world.

“The pressure on politicians is great. People are getting impatient, they want to get vaccinated, ”he said in an interview with the Handelsblatt newspaper published on Saturday.

“In this regard, governments want to do everything they can. On the issue of Sputnik V, there are disagreements and varying degrees of sensitivity among the EU member states, ”Michel added.

On Thursday, German Health Minister Jens Spahn said that Germany will hold bilateral negotiations with the Russian side on the possible supply of Sputnik V in case the vaccine is admitted to the EU, since the European Commission, for its part, does not want to conclude preliminary agreements with the manufacturer of the drug.
