The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) yesterday announced the approval of the Russian Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine in the Republic of Indonesia.

Indonesia has become the 70th country in the world to register the Russian vaccine. Sputnik V was granted an emergency use authorization (EUA). The total population of all countries where Sputnik V is approved for use now exceeds four billion people, which is more than half of the global population, RDIF said in a statement.

It also said that the real-world data obtained during vaccination with Sputnik V in a number of countries (Argentina, San Marino, Serbia, Hungary, Bahrain, Mexico, the UAE and others) demonstrate that Sputnik V is one of the safest and most effective vaccines against coronavirus.
