Both India and China are likely to start producing Russia's Sputnik V vaccine against COVID-19 at the earliest, according to a statement made by Vladimir Putin. Russia's Sputnik V vaccine has been tested and proven to have 92% effective at protecting people from COVID-19 based on interim trial results.

In September 2020, Dr Reddy's Laboratories based out of Hyderabad and the Russian Direct Investment Fund or RDIF, entered into a partnership to conduct clinical trials of Sputnik V vaccine and for manufacture and distribution in India. RDIF is a Russian sovereign fund.

RDIF has agreed to supply 100 million doses of the vaccine to Dr Reddy's upon regulatory approval in India. Of the other two where test results are released, Pfizer has shown 90% effectiveness rate while Moderna of Germany has shown 94% effectiveness.
