Moscow is looking at a possibility to supply a free batch of the Sputnik V anti-coronavirus vaccine to Afghanistan to vaccinate members of the Afghan parliament’s lower house, Russian president’s special envoy for Afghanistan and director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s second Asia department, Zamir Kabulov said in an interview with TASS.

“Currently, we are considering a request from the lower house of Afghanistan’s National Council on the supply of a limited Sputnik V batch on a free basis to vaccine members of the Afghan parliament,” he said.


“No concrete agreements have been reached as of yet,” he noted.
