Russian President Vladimir Putin said Sunday that he had a third dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, as the country struggles with a fresh wave of the virus.

"Today, on your recommendation, on the recommendation of your colleagues, I received another inoculation, with Sputnik Light. This is what is known as revaccination," Putin said.

"As for the painlessness, I did it (vaccination) two hours ago, and I don't feel anything. I'm in normal condition, everything is ok. "

Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Russia has confirmed 9,366,839 cases and 265,336 deaths.
