Reuters exclusively reports Germany wants to buy Sputnik COVID vaccine if approved by EU

Reuters exclusively reported that Germany is about to start bilateral negotiations with Russia to obtain its Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine and any final agreement depended on Russia providing key data to the European Medicines Agency (EMA). According to a Reuters source, the European Commission told health ministers of EU member states that Brussels was not planning to start talks with Russia on a preliminary contract for Sputnik V as it did with other vaccine providers. That is why German Health Minister Jens Spahn announced during the virtual meeting that Germany would start preliminary negotiations with Russia on a bilateral agreement to secure the vaccine.
