When does the plane that will bring the new doses leave?

The schedule of new flights to Russia to find the agreed doses of the vaccine Sputnik V continued this Monday awaiting confirmation of the destination.

Although the third plane bound for the Russian Federation was scheduled to depart on Sunday night, the lack of guarantees from that country postponed its departure, which was tentatively passed for the same time, but this Monday.

Once again, that confirmation did not arrive and once again from Aerolineas Argentinas they postponed the calendar.

The national government signed with the Russian Direct Investment Fund (FRID) a contract for four million of dose 1 and one million of dose 2 to arrive before the end of January, in addition to an agreement for 14.7 million to February.

Although the amounts established in the contract are confirmed, the administration of Vladimir Putin must officially ratify the schedule to develop each of the trips that transport the Sputnik V vaccines from the Gamaleya laboratory.

That didn’t happen over the weekend or yesterday, so the plane and crew remained ready and waiting. Nobody rules out that it happens this Tuesday, or that it be postponed again.

From Aerolineas Argentinas they pointed to Chronicle that the flag carrier had not formalized any schedule, precisely pending the endorsement of the country of origin of the vaccines.

In Russia, in addition, there is a strong debate on the export of doses, while claiming to serve the population first.
