MOSCOW. Dec 2 (Interfax) - The price tag on the Russian-made Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine will be lower than $10 per dose, which will make it the most affordable vaccine of all, head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) Kirill Dmitriev said.

"The price of Russian coronavirus vaccine Sputnik V will be less than $10 per dose," Dmitriev said when presenting the Russian-made vaccine at a special session of the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday.

The vaccine developed by Russia's Gamaleya Center will be the cheapest of all similar vaccines and available for other countries, he said.
