According to him, Italy currently does not plan to recognize the Russian drug at the national level.

“It would be difficult for us to follow the path followed, for example, by Hungary.

We are very closely integrated into the European Union, we are an important member of it, and we respect the regulatory procedures within the European Union, ”RIA Novosti quotes Starace's statement.

According to the ambassador, Italy intends to do everything possible to advance the decision on the recognition of the Sputnik V vaccine in Brussels.

“Let's see what happens.

Of course, Italy will play a role in technical advice.

The decision is made by specialized institutions, but we want the process to accelerate, ”Starace said.

Earlier, the Italian Ministry of Health allowed for the possibility of additional vaccination of those vaccinated with "Sputnik V" with other drugs.
