December 9, 2021

Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with President of the Republic of South Africa Cyril Ramaphosa.

The parties continued their discussion of the two countries’ interaction in the context of the newly identified Omicron strain of the coronavirus. They agreed on having a group of Russian virologists, epidemiologists, researchers, and doctors, as well as a sanitary-epidemiological laboratory and other medical equipment sent to South Africa in the very short term.

Cyril Ramaphosa appreciated Russia’s interest in closer cooperation in responding to the pandemic.
