North Macedonia’s Government said Belgrade donated 20,000 Russian Sputnik V shots on Thursday, while the other 20,000 of the same producer were due soon.

The country’s President Zoran Zaev said the donation was “an act of great friendship that comes in such an important moment for us. It will help us to continue the mass vaccinations,” Zaev told reporters.

That was the second donation from Serbia, after 8,000 of Pfizer vaccine were sent to North Macedonia, the first contingent ever, and was used for immunization of medical staff.
