Serbian filmmaker Emir Kusturica has already been vaccinated with the Russian Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine

“I have already given the first injection, the next one on February 17,” he said in an interview with Rossotrudnichestvo. Headache was the only side effect after the drug was administered.

At the end of last year, the Agency for Medicines and Medical Devices (ALIMS) of Serbia issued a permit for the use of "Sputnik V" in the country, vaccination with the drug began on January 6. At the same time, according to the Serbian Ministry of Health, more than 40% of citizens preferred the Russian vaccine.

“The Belgrade elite, which is close to the West, believe in Pfizer and Modern, but I think that 80 percent of Serbs believe in Russians and believe in the effectiveness of Sputnik V. They consider it the best vaccine and hope there will be more of it in Serbia. This vaccine is the most important for us, ”Kusturica said in an interview with Rossotrudnichestvo.

At the moment, Moscow and Belgrade are negotiating the joint production of Sputnik V in Serbia.

Innovation Minister Nenad Popovich noted that the Republic hopes to start the production of the vaccine in two stages - in a few months to begin packaging the drug, and by the end of the year to move to the "full production cycle".
