CHISINAU, February 28. /TASS/. Moldovan President Maia Sandu has hailed registration of the Russian Sputnik V anti-coronavirus vaccine in her country.
"I have seen the medicines agency’s decision. It has registered the Russian vaccine," she told a briefing on Sunday after talks with visiting European Council President Charles Michel. "I am glad that we will soon have enough various vaccines."
She asked Michel to help Moldova receive enough vaccine doses. "We must make the lives of Moldova’s medics and people safe. That is why I am asking for your support concerning vaccination in the republic," Sandu said.
