New York [US], November 25 (ANI/Sputnik): Months after Russian President Vladimir Putin made an offer to provide free Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccines to all the United Nations staff worldwide, UN spokesperson Stephane Dujarric on Tuesday said they are still holding discussions and looking at the relevant data.
While addressing the UN General Assembly in September, Russian President Putin had offered free Sputnik V vaccines to all the United Nations staff worldwide.

"We continue to be in discussions and looking at that," Dujarric told reporters when asked about the offer.
Earlier, Dujarric said the vaccine must be cleared by the World Health Organization.
In August, Russia became the first country in the world to register a coronavirus vaccine developed by Gamaleya National Center of Epidemiology and Microbiology. (ANI/Sputnik)
