PARIS (Reuters) – No company in France has signed a contract with Russia to produce its COVID-19 Sputnik V vaccine, a spokesman for France’s industry minister said on Tuesday, appearing to contradict the head of Russia’s RDIF sovereign wealth fund.

“We have not identified a site which meets their requirements,” the spokesman said. “As far as we’re aware, no contract has been signed by a company in France to produce the Sputnik V vaccine.”

Earlier, the head of Russia’s RDIF sovereign wealth fund said his organisation had struck deals with production facilities in Italy, Spain, France and Germany to manufacture the Russian shot.No contract signed to produce Russian COVID-19 shot, says French official Add a Comment
