The Sputnik V plane is due to arrive in Guatemala this week

A plane with the Russian vaccine Sputnik V will arrive in Guatemala this week, the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) told the Made in Russia project.

Earlier, the media reported that Guatemalan Health Minister Amelia Flores said that the country was asking Russia to refund money for the purchase of the Sputnik V vaccine due to delays in deliveries.

"A plane with Sputnik V vaccines is due to arrive in Guatemala this week," a representative of RDIF said.

He added that the next plane will land early next week and stressed that the Russian side "continues to fulfill its obligations under the contract."

According to media reports, only a small portion of the total number of doses of the domestic drug paid for by the Guatemalan government has been delivered to Guatemala in the past.

According to the foreign minister of Guatemala, the parties are now negotiating to revise the contract to include the one-component Sputnik Lite.

Last week, the Russian foreign minister said after talks with his Guatemalan counterpart that the countries were discussing the possibility of accelerating the delivery of new batches of the domestic vaccine, media reports said.
