Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Minister of Foreign Affairs B.Battsetseg today posted on her official Facebook page that Mongolia has became possible to purchase 1 million doses of Sputnik-V vaccine, which was under talks with the Russian Federation.

The Minister noted that the demand for Sputnik-V vaccine is very high and we have witnessed the result of continuous efforts by the Mongolian Government and official letters sent by Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of Mongolia. I am expressing my gratitude to Russia for its positive approach to the issue.
