MOSCOW Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday that he hoped the Russia-made Sputnik V vaccine would protect him after coronavirus cases were detected in his entourage forcing him to isolate.

“I hope everything will be as it should be and that Sputnik V will in practice show its high levels of protection against COVID-19,” the Russian leader said via video link during a government meeting.
