Currently, Venezuela and Russia have 20 cooperation agreements, one of which refers to the supply of COVID-19 vaccines.
On Thursday, the Russian Ambassador Sergey Melik-Bagdasarov to Venezuela reported that the Bolivarian nation received a batch of 789,742 doses of insulin produced by Geropharm.
"A new stage of cooperation begins for health protection through technology transfer and insulin production in Venezuela," he tweeted.
In October 2021, the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry reported that both countries signed an agreement for the supply of insulin within the framework of a "strategic pharmaceutical commercial alliance" between the Venezuelan company Espromed Bio and Geropharm.
During a meeting in Moscow, Venezuelan authorities and Geropharm directors also evaluated a project that includes the production of insulin in the South American country.
