President Vladimir Putin has called on Russians to get vaccinated against the coronavirus and said the country is prepared to allow foreigners to enter Russia to get the jab.

“Every citizen of Russia has the opportunity to get vaccinated completely free of charge … I’d like to ask our citizens to take this opportunity and protect themselves,” Putin told the Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum, adding that Russia could also “provide an opportunity” for foreigners to get vaccinated.
